In the fall of 1913, Isidora Sekulić travels across Norway. The young author seeks to be enchanted by nature: by the steep fjords, the endless fjells, the majestic silence and the lights of the north. Next to hospitality and conviviality, she experiences the melancholy and loneliness found in the faraway corners of the country and gets to know the nature of Norwegian culture and society. What particularly impresses Isidora Sekulić is the natural acceptance of single women as members of society—something which she sorely misses in Serbia, her home country.

For the first time, this edition, which was published by the Friedenauer Presse, makes the author, Serbian intellectual and passionate traveler of Europe known to a broader audience.
