Oslo, nestled in the foothills of the towering Scandinavian mountains, is ringed by primeval forests and deep glacial fjords. An island of civilization in pristine wilderness, the Norwegian capital boasts a compact center brimming with cozy cafes and chic boutiques.
World-class museums like the Munchmuseet make visiting a scream. Check out the imposing walls of Oslo City Hall, where laureates from Martin Luther King to the Dalai Lama have collected Nobel Peace Prizes. Later, take a picture with the Royal Palace guards or do a spot of shopping round Karl Johans gate.
Check out the Viking Ship Museum, which houses ancient remnants of the fearsome vessels, or take a trip to the neoclassical Frogner neighborhood to visit its iconic sculpture park. But the best way to explore Oslo is with a cruise through the Oslofjord, past picturesque fishing villages and steep glacial cliffs. So what are you waiting for? Visit Scandinavia’s oldest capital.
