Hotel Reservations in Oslo
Step outside your luxury hotel in Oslo into one of the world's most expensive cities. But don't let that scare you. The city of Oslo is rich in history and culture and offers a wealth of things to see and do.
With history dating back to the Middle Ages there are several notable architectural sites. Akershus festning is a medieval castle and fortress with beautiful views of the Oslofjord. The Parliament, Stortinget, with its semi-circular front chamber was inspired by French and Italian architecture. Exhibiting a modern posture, the Opera House is shaped like a ship or glacier and is covered in white granite and Italian white marble. Oslo Airport, Gardermoen, built in wood, metal and glass, is light and airy and includes artwork that gives one the impression of clouds and webs.
The Viking and explorative culture of Oslo can be viewed in one of the many museums throughout the city. The Viking Ship Museum includes two Viking vessels both around 1,100 years old. In addition you can visit a Viking burial chamber complete with skeletons. The Fram-Museum speaks to the city's polar expedition history. The star attraction is the Fram vessel which was the strongest wooden expedition ship steered through ice-packed arctic seas.
The topography of Oslo resembles an auditorium with the city centre at bottom closest to the Oslo fjord. The residential areas extend uphill in all directions opening into forest. One of the more beautiful parks in Oslo is Frogner Park. Here you can have the wondrous natural experience as well as an artistic encounter with over 200 sculptures by artist Gustav Vigeland.
