About Oslo

This capital city was ranked No. 1 in terms of quality of life among European large cities in the European Cities of the Future 2012 report by fDi magazine. Oslo is home to many world-class museums, has a burgeoning nightlife scene and is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, as it is hemmed by miles of forest and is in close proximity to lakes, islands and fjords. Vikingskipshuet (Viking Ship Museum) should not be missed as it houses the best preserved Viking ships in the world; neither should the National Gallery, home of Edvard Munch’s masterpiece The Scream.
