Oslo - A metropolitian capital with forests and fjord
Between the Oslofjord and the forests lies Oslo, Norway’s capital and largest city, with its vibrant social scene and special combination of nature experiences and city life.
Oslo is one of Europe’s fastest-growing cities, with a population approaching 700,000 and new neighbourhoods with eye-catching architecture popping up almost by the minute. The largest city in Norway is quickly transforming into a cosmopolitan hub with an abundance of world-class museums, restaurants, and art, while still maintaining the relaxed atmosphere of a much smaller town.
