Guide of Oslo

Geography

Oslo is Norway's capital and most populated city. It is a county as well as a municipality. Oslo is located at the head of the Oslofjord, surrounded by woods and mountains. There are roughly 40 islands in and around the city boundaries, the most important of which is Malmya, which is closest to Oslofjord. There are roughly 343 lakes in Oslo, the biggest of which is Maridalsvannet.

Climate in Oslo

The climate in Oslo is humid continental. Summers in Oslo are nice, while winters are rather frigid. Throughout the year, Oslo receives a substantial quantity of precipitation. Because of the city's northern latitude, daylight hours vary widely, ranging from more than 18 hours in the summertime, when it never gets fully dark at night, to roughly 6 hours in midwinter. The best time to visit Oslo is between May and August, when temperatures are pleasant and daytime temperatures are typically in the 60s and 70s. However, nights may be cool, so do pack a coat.

Culture

If you want a taste of Norway's Scandinavian traditions and modern ideals, Oslo is the place to be. In the fourteenth century, a persistent romantic nationalist movement swept the land, leaving its mark on the art and culture of the country for generations to come.

Things To Do in Oslo

Discover the Viking Ship Museum

The Viking Ship Museum, located on the scenic Bygdoy Peninsula, is one of Norway's most intriguing and popular tourist sites. You will feel as though you are travelling through time as you explore the inside. Artefacts from four separate Viking excavation sites around the Oslo Fjord have been meticulously collected and presented at the museum. The incredible 21-metre-long Pre-Christian Scandinavian vessel, the Oseberg Ship, has been well-preserved throughout the years and will give you an insight into Viking life as it was aeons ago. This site was used as a burial cemetery for a chieftain's wife and contains objects of clothes, furniture, and personal usage, among other things. The Gokstad and Tune ships are equally captivating, with wood sculptures, fabrics, and smaller boats, among other things. Vikings Alive, the museum's CGI animated film, will continue to engross you with a magnificent depiction of Viking life as you walk along.

Marvel at the Oslo Opera House

The Oslo Opera House is a beautiful edifice that seems to resemble a glacier on the Oslo Fjord and is positioned directly on the harbour. It was completed in 2007 and houses the norvegian National Opera and Ballet, the country's biggest performing arts organisation. The outside of this renowned monument is made of white granite and Italian marble, while the warm interiors with wood surfaces are a joy to explore. The foyer welcomes you with a steel sculpture by Monica Bonvicini and a wall panel by Olafur Eliasson. You may be sure that seeing an artistic performance in the auditorium, which has a seating capacity of 1,364 people, will be a memory you will treasure for the rest of your life. Go up to the roof around sunset for a beautiful view of the Oslo Fjord and for your Instagram photos.

Visit the Royal Palace

Another must-see attraction is the majestic norvegian Royal Palace. The 173-room palace, which is located inside the Royal Palace Park, is available to guests for guided tours and contains the Cabinet Parlour, Mirror Hall, Banquet, and other rooms. Watch the changing of the guard here before heading south to the Nobel Institute, which is well-known for hosting the presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize.
