Oslo is the capital city as well as the cultural, political and economic hub of Norway. The city is known the world over for being the home of the Nobel Prize and the starting point for polar expeditions and trips to the fjords.
Oslo offers an endless list of cultural and tourist attractions, including such fascinating sites as the Munch Museum, the National Gallery, the Norwegian Maritime Museum, the Henie-Onstad Art Centre, the Storting building, and Vigeland Park.
The more cosmopolitan side of Oslo can be found around the Aker Brygge port area, home to boutiques, street cafés and night clubs. And outside the city, we recommend a visit to Nordmarka, the perfect place for skiing, fishing or running in natural surroundings.
