Norway's capital city, Oslo boasts a thousand years of history and a diverse mix of architecture that blends old, new, and ultra-modern.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sognsvann Lake and Fredriksten Festning (Fredriksten Fortress). Venture out of the city with trips to Heddal Stave Church (in Notodden), The Fortified Town (in Fredrikstad) and Drammen (Kjosterudjuvet & Spiralen). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Botanical Gardens (Botanisk Hage og Museum), contemplate the waterfront views at Akerselva River, contemplate the long history of Ostbanehallen, and stroll around Ekebergparken.
