Norway’s capital city is a cosmopolitan hub with an abundance of world-class architecture, museums, restaurants and shopping.
One of Europe’s fastest growing cities this decade, Oslo is buzzing with energy from new neighbourhoods and cutting-edge food, fashion and art. Despite captivating landmarks like the Opera House, the Astrup Fearnley Museum and the Barcode district changing the face of the city, Oslo maintains a refreshing closeness to nature that few other capitals can match.
Nestled between the Oslofjord and forested hills, Oslo was named European Green Capital 2019 for its dedication to conserving natural areas and reducing pollution. The compact city centre is easy and safe to explore on foot or by bike, and the efficient public transport system makes the entire city accessible without a car. Oslo is also in the process of being certified as a Sustainable Destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism.
