The county consists of three landscapes: Nordmøre (northernmost), Romsdal (in the middle) and Sunnmøre (to the south). In addition to usual trade and cultural relations between county internal districts, there have been traditionally strong connections between Nordmøre and Sør-Trøndelag in the north, Romsdal and Oppland in the east, and Sunnmøre and Sogn og Fjordane in the south. Differences in dialects between the three districts bear clear evidence of this. Due to geographical features—the county has many populated islands and is intersected by several deep fjords—Møre og Romsdal has been very dependent on boat traffic, and its main car ferry company, MRF, has existed since 1921.
