Oslo (or Christiania as it used to be known) is shiny, happy, relaxed and liberal, a city that boasts a rare display of cultural gems; a bounty of fjords, lakes and forests within minutes of the city center; and an exciting nightlife. Oslo is a European architecture and design hotspot, a romantic city as well, with a heart that still beats with Viking pride. Don’t forget your camera – Oslo’s new-age buildings and the Vigeland Park shine spectacularly at dusk. If you are a foodie, you will never forget Oslo’s finest chocolatiers, and its restaurants.
