La Norvege le pays du soleil de minuit. Thorolf Holmboe was a Norwegian painter, illustrator and designer. There exists a theory that this scene, from Grønøy with the view of Bolgen Mountain, was the inspiration for the famous Norwegian matchbox 'Hjelpestikken'. This urban legend is unfortunately incorrect..
Holmboe is well known for his landscape paintings from northern Norway, he is represented in the National Gallery with several paintings.
In the Europe map you can see the city of St. Petersburg is called Petrograd (Petrograd was its name from 1914–1924)
