Oslo, the capital of Norway, is one of the greenest cities in the world: parks account for three-quarters of its territory. The city is located at the beginning of the Oslofjord and is surrounded by wooded hills that offer pleasant hiking and cycling in the summer and many ski runs in the winter. Despite the fact that the city was founded in the 11th century, Oslo doesn’t boast an abundance of historical monuments, as the medieval city was made of wood and most of it perished in fires. However, you can see many interesting 17-20th century structures side by side with whimsical modern architecture.
The fastest and easiest way to get to the capital of Norway is to fly. Aeroflot operates direct Moscow-Oslo flights(2 h 50 m). Planes land at Oslo’s main airport, Gardermoen, located 36 kilometers from the centre.
The best way to save money is to buy round-trip tickets. The best fares sell out quickly, so we recommend booking in advance.
