Fairy tales from the forests and seas of Norway

"Fairy tales from the forests and seas of Norway" is a new podcast series now adapted into Greek.

In this podcast, Norwegian fairy tales will be presented by Paramythofono once a month until December.

"Norwegian fairy tales breathe life into the glaciers and fjords where spirits dwell and trolls make their homes. Simultaneously grotesque and quaint, Norwegian fairy tales are anything but a nursery or children’s story. Sometimes Norwegian fairy tales are downright scary, but in being so, they are also gripping and exciting.

The wild animals of Norway, bears and wolves, foxes and salmons, give aid to industrious and kind folk in need, and often know all the secrets of the land and machinations of the trolls and giants. Norwegian fairy tales wouldn’t exist without princes and princesses, beggars who become kings, and wicked stepmothers who pay for their cruelty; they are tales of unlikely heroes, and intrepid underdogs, of spell reversals and seeking one’s fortune."
