What to do in Oslo

Oslo is a cosmopolitan city with a laid-back atmosphere and is the oldest capital city of Scandinavia. The city and its surroundings offer plenty of things to do and see. If you have time to visit the more remote areas, the Henie-Onstad Art Centre is a great day out. Sonja Henie is a former skating champion and movie star and her husband, Niels Onstad, is a famous shipping tycoon. Together they opened this museum to give the public the opportunity to see their art collection.

The Viking Ship Museum displays three of the most impressive Viking ships in the world. They are the Gokstad, the Tune and the Oseberg. The ships were found in royal burial mounds in the Oslo fjord.

Oslo offers excellent restaurants serving international dishes, Italian espresso bars and several well-known fast food outlets. Food is available to suit all tastes.
