Oslo is the fastest growing capital in Europe, and has during the last decade transformed into a vibrant international city. It is still changing rapidly.
Along the shoreline, a completely new city district has replaced old docks and former traffic jams. Today, the city district of Bjørvika is a hotspot for modern architecture with The Oslo Opera House as the jewel in the crown, after being announced one of the most spectacular buildings in Europe.
In Oslo you may also try out local recepies or food from all corners of the world in one of the several food courts. You can enjoy well renowned bars, cafés and restaurants, or have a night out at one of the biggest regular LGBT nightclubs in Europe.
But what makes Oslo unique compared to most other major cities, is it’s close proximity to nature. The city lies in the end of the Oslo fiord, and with a ferry trip on just a few minutes you can explore one of the many fiord islands, have a picnic, or even go for a swim. And on the other side of the city, you find the hills and forests, with numerous hiking tracks and calm surroundings – away from the disturbances of the city.
