The Norwegian capital offers an exciting mix of urbanity and rural charm. Situated in deep forests, mountains and the Oslofjord, Oslo is a vibrant, trendy city with unconventional architecture, cultural diversity, and idyllic nature. Oslo is considered to be one of the most architecturally interesting cities in the world: the opera resembles an ice floe, the skyline a barcode, and the new Munch Museum has a kink. Oslo is very manageable and compact, so it is easy to get around on foot. The harbour area is interesting; it is home to some well-known cultural institutions, such as the Astrup Fearnley Museum with contemporary art, the opera, and the main library. As an contrast to modern urban development, a visit to the old town of Gamlebyen is well worth it – with its numerous small shops, galleries, and cafés, it is the best-preserved fortified town in Northern Europe. A visit to the medieval Akerhus Castle and Fortress also allows you to discover old Oslo.
