Here you will also find art galleries, restaurants, shopping possibilities – in short; everything a modern city has to offer. In recent years, Oslo has become famous for its innovative and creative urban architecture such as the Oslo Operahouse, situated at the end of the Oslofjord, where you can go for a walk on the opera roof.
Oslo is a green city with more than fifty parks. Even though it is Norway’s biggest city, it’s just a short distance from the Norwegian wilderness.
