Welcome to Oslo! What to visit in the capital of Norway?

Attractions Oslo

Oslo is the capital of Norway and its largest city, located in the eastern part of the country in the fjord. This is a harsh and reserved Scandinavian city with a rich history, although almost nothing remains of the ancient buildings because they were wooden and were constantly destroyed by fires.

What to visit in OSLO?

First of all, it is worth visiting Akershus Castle and Fortress. It was founded in the 14th century. The fortress survived sieges, destruction by fire from a lightning strike, multiple reconstructions, was used for government receptions and as a prison. Today it serves as the headquarters of the Norwegian Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defense. Several Norwegian monarchs rest in its chapel. The castle houses several museums.

Karl Johan Street

Arriving in Oslo, be sure to take a walk along Karl Johan Street, which starts at the Central Station. It houses the strict Oslo Cathedral, the building of the Norwegian Parliament, as well as the picturesque building of the Norwegian National Theater built in 1899 and the residence of the Norwegian monarchs – the Royal Palace.

Oslo Rathaus

The central part of the city also boasts the town hall building, one of Oslo’s most impressive buildings. This is not surprising, since the Oslo City Hall is a kind of monument to the hard-won Norwegian independence.

The Fram ship Museum

The capital of Norway is very rich in museums. In addition to such fairly traditional museums as the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design or the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, there is even the Kon-Tiki Museum. The Viking Ship Museum on the peninsula of Bygdøy in the western part of Oslo is very popular. Its most famous exhibits are three Viking funeral drakkars that are over a thousand years old.


Don’t miss the Norsk Folkemuseum, Norway’s largest and oldest local history museum, an open-air collection of 150 houses from all over the country.

You can visit a medieval Norwegian wooden church, of which there are only a few left in the country, or dress up in national costumes.

The Heni-Unstad Art Center is located 10 km from Oslo. Since you have already arrived in Oslo, you can also pay attention to Drøbak, a quiet seaside town located near the fortress island of Oscarsborg.
