Oslo – Surprisingly Cool
Norway’s capital is a fjord-side city surrounded by forests, lakes and hills. Half of Oslo's area is dedicated to green space, so there are plenty of places where you can breathe deep.
Whether it's boating on Oslofjord or hiking in the forested hills flanking the city, there are many active options to choose from. Oslo's compact size makes it perfect for strolling: just pick a direction and go. On the city´s west side, you find large elegant homes with green gardens, and Bygdøy peninsula, home to several museums, including the outdoor Norsk Folkemuseum (Norwegian Museum of Cultural History), and Viking ship museum.
On the east side, students and young families have created a funkier vibe in old neighborhoods like Grünerløkka, with vintage shops, cool cafes, restaurants and microbreweries. A subway ride away (slightly north) you find the famous Holmenkollen ski jump and vast forests. Downtown is home to restaurants, cafes, great shopping areas and sculpture parks, the most famous being the Vigeland Sculpture Park and Ekeberg Park.
