ADSTRACT. Historical and economical contacts in the northern regions of Russia and Norway are deeply rooted, and this fact has influenced the connections between the peoples of these countries. In the nineteenth century, the contacts were especially intensive thanks to the Pomor trade, the traditional trade between Russians and Norwegians in the North. The main purpose of this article is to demonstrate how the Pomor trade promoted the cultural influence of these two neighbor peoples on each other. The trade between fi shers from the two countries took a form of exchange. Manufactured goods from Norway entered Pomor everyday life, while Russian folk culture was introduced to Norwegians living in places visited by Pomors.
