The Norwegian capital, Oslo, will warm your heart with its long white nights, natural emerald greenery, gable-roofed houses, savory cuisine and friendly people.
Founded by the Vikings in 1050, Oslo is a leading capital as much of Europe as of Scandinavia. Besides being a bustling port city, it is also an exciting and vibrant metropolis that struts its dynamism twenty-four hours a day.
As unusual as it is beautiful, this northern capital will impress you first with its architecture. You will find yourself in a picture pretty environment you almost can't believe is real: gable-roofed houses, emerald green nature and, of course, the fjords that surround the blue waters of the North Sea.
LONG WHITE NIGHTS...
This lovely city, which wears winter like a pure white wedding gown, suddenly puts on every conceivable shade of green come summer. After yielding to the North's winter darkness, in summer it revels in the long white nights.
