Oslo on wheels
Welcome to Oslo!The capital of Norway is a wonderful mixture between old and new, nature and urbanization, which we are soon to discover. Most of the area is forest surrounding the actual city center, so don’t worry, you will be able to cross the urban part of the city by foot or bike and also get a feeling of Norwegian nature, since that is always present, even in the architecture here in Oslo!In this tour we will discover many things that still stand since the era when Oslo was called Christiania and went under Danish rule, for example the Royal Palace and Akershus Fortress. This Nordic capital has been through a lot and fairly recently, in 1925, regained its name and status as capital of Norway. We will also get a feeling of how Norway survived World War II, and what that did to the country and its people, by visiting the resistance museum. But not only will we go back in time; we will also be able to appreciate the recent architectural wonders of this city! Oslo has as of later years become a really trendy place with a beautiful modern touch added to its traditional Nordic style. The greatest example of that is probably the Norwegian Opera and Ballet with its spectacular architecture that we will visit right now!
