What's Oslo Like?

Oslo combines the grandeur of a national capital with an air of understated Norwegian modesty. One of the most popular attractions is the unique National Folk Museum, an open air space showcasing 155 traditional houses from all over the country and a Stave church from the 13th century. Norwegian history is also explored in a dramatic way in the Viking Ship museum featuring two of the best-preserved ships from the 9th century, alongside weapons and artifacts. 21st century Oslo is exemplified by the stark white lines and sharp angles of the striking waterfront Opera House, offering panoramic vistas over the fjord and the city. Norway's obsession with winter sports is celebrated at the Holmenkollen ski museum, housed inside an immense ski jump with an observation deck and featuring exhibits covering 4000 years of skiing and Norwegian polar exploration. Oslo hotels offer the perfect base for exploring this fascinating capital.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Oslo

English is widely understood in Oslo but it is fun and courteous to learn a few Norwegian greetings or basic phrases like "god morgen" for good morning, "farvel" for goodbye and "takk" for thank you. Norway is a wealthy country with some of the highest food prices anywhere in the world. Be aware that dining out in formal restaurants or having a couple of drinks in a bar can be costly. Small ethnic eateries, market stalls or cafes usually offer the best deals. Norwegian salmon dishes feature heavily on Oslo menus, but visitors might find that the traditional Norwegian recipe for lutefisk, dried cod in a kind of jelly, takes a bit of getting used to.
