This is Oslo, Norway
Oslo is the capital of Norway and by far its largest city, with a population of
more than 550,000. Nestled between the mountain-side and the fjord, this
sprawling Nordic capital boasts the most unique location and a proximity to
nature that few capitals can match. Whether taking a stroll along the
city's unforgettable main street Karl Johan with its talented buskers and a multitude of shops and pubs, or soaking
the unique atmosphere of the fjord from one of AkerBrygge's numerous waterside cafés and
restaurants, you are no more than minutes away from the vast areas of
beautiful pine forests to the north or the wonderful beaches and green
islands out in the fjord. This is a modern European capital unrivaled for
its unlimited fresh air and breathtaking natural scenery.

Still, this capital city can offer a wide range of
entertainment options, as well as some great shopping opportunities. Oslo is turning into a bustling metropolis with the
typical profusion of sidewalk cafés, excellent restaurants and an exciting nightlife.
For those interested in culture Oslo has really a lot to offer. The city's impressive
array of sights and attractions includes the Vigeland sculpture park, the EdvardMunch
museum, the Viking ship museum,
the Kon-Tiki museum and the NationalArtGallery to name just a few. There's just too much to see
and do. In addition to the landmarks and attractions above, must-see places
include the Holmenkollen ski jump and ski museum, the Akershus Fortress and Castle, the National Museum of History, the Museum of Folklore... For the record, Oslo is the site of Norway's oldest university, oldest theater, and it is
home to both the national government and the Norwegian Parliament (the Storting).
The capital city of Norway has a well developed public transportation
system, which includes a large network of subway trains, trams, buses,
boats and suburban trains. Bike rentals are also available. Still, downtown
Oslo can best be explored on foot.
Tightly surrounded by
forest-clad hills and lakes, while simultaneously sprawled around the
shores of the beautiful Oslo fjord, the Norwegian capital can offer splendid opportunities for
outdoor activities both summer and winter. Regardless whether you choose to
explore Oslo on foot, by bus, tram or by making a boat trip
around the fjord, you will be overwhelmed with the intimacy this modern
capital has to offer.
