About Oslo

Oslo is the capital of Norway and has over 670.000 inhabitants. A rather small capital, but with a vibrant cultural life: take a stroll at the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, Vigeland sculpture park, have a look at the famous painting by Edvard Munch, the Scream, or visit one of the many islands within city limits.

Oslo is surrounded by beautiful nature with great scenery from the fjord to the forested hills.
