Tiger City

Norway's capital city, Oslo boasts a thousand years of history and a diverse mix of architecture that blends old, new, and ultra-modern.
Step off the beaten path and head to Botanical Gardens (Botanisk Hage og Museum) and The Norwegian Museum of Science and Tehnology. Step out of the city life by going to Oslomarka and Sognsvann Lake.
