Tiger City

Norway's capital city, Oslo boasts a thousand years of history and a diverse mix of architecture that blends old, new, and ultra-modern.
Step out of the city life by going to Nordmarka and Sognsvann Lake. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Heddal Stave Church and Fredriksten Festning (Fredriksten Fortress). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Oslomarka, contemplate the long history of Akershus Castle and Fortress (Akershus Slott og Festning), get curious at The Norwegian Museum of Science and Tehnology, and take an in-depth tour of Fram Museum.
