Oslo is the capital and biggest city of Norway. It is the economic and administrative center of this beautiful country.
But Oslo is much more than this - it is a unique city, that combines all the fuss of a capital city with the preserved connection of the Norwegians with nature. This is visible even in its subway network, which may carry you to surrounding forests, lakes and hiking trails for a summer walk or a winter ski excursion.
Oslo is also remarkable with its more than 1000 years of history, making it the oldest of the Scandinavian capitals and a city full of historical landmarks like its cathedral and fortress. Other remarkable sites in Oslo are its museums, which include the one-of-a-kind Viking Ships Museum, the Munch Museum, the bronze and granite sculptures of Gustav Vigeland park-museum and the historical Resistance Museum.
You will need at least several days to taste the beauty and thrill of Oslo and to be able to relax with the wonderful outdoor activities found here.
