Is Oslo on your mind?
Exploring Norway's capital city
Oslo, the capital of Norway, is where the mountains and the sea meet. Founded as a city at the end of the Viking Age in 1040, Oslo enjoys a stunningly beautiful setting at the northernmost end of the Oslofjord. Surrounded by green hills that turn snow white in winter, the city is a pedestrian-friendly delight to discover. World-class museums and art galleries provide visitors with a cultural high, after which they can chill out in one of the many waterfront cafés and restaurants the destination is famous for. And then there are the islands and peninsulas of Oslofjord itself to explore. So, is Oslo on your mind?
