Buskerud is a county in Norway, bordering Akershus, Oslo, Oppland, Sogn og Fjordane, Hordaland, Telemark and Vestfold. The county extends from the Oslofjord and Drammensfjorden in the southeast to Hardangervidda mountain range in the northwest. The county administration is located in Drammen.EtymologyThe county is named after the old manor Buskerud located on the west side of the Drammen River in Åmot, Modum municipality. The first element is the genitive case of ', 'bishop' (referring to the Bishop of Hamar), the last element is ' n 'clearing, farm'. The farm was one of the largest in Buskerud, and the original name of the farm (before it became a benefice) was probably Modum. At the time of the Reformation the farm became property of the Crown at which time the farm then served as the residence of the king's bailiffs until 1668.GeographyBuskerud extends from Hurum at the Oslofjord to the Halling mountains and Hardanger. The county is conventionally divided into traditional districts. These are Hallingdal, Numedal, Ringerike, Lower Buskerud, which was originally part of Vestfold, and Western Vingulmark.
