Great engineering works have been carried out, hills cut down, embankments built, and magnificent roads made, where formerly little better than mere horse-tracks existed. Numerous railways have been opened, and the electric tele graph is now in operation between all the chief towns, and the general continental system of Europe. In addition to this the steam communication has been greatly extended and improved, both on the fjords of the coast and on the great inland lakes. This Handbook endeavours to point out rather where lines of steamers exist, than to give the exact days and hours of their departure, which are liable to change, not only every year, but every month, as the dark autumn nights lengthen.
