About Oslo

Recently ranked the world’s most expensive city to live in, Oslo is a relatively tropical paradise among Scandinavian cities. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, the climate is generally pleasant in summer and the winters are a far cry from some of the blisteringly frigid, sub-freezing environments of her neighboring cities. With a population of just under one million including the surrounding area, Oslo is a vibrant city that has grown over the centuries into a unique and interesting culture. Dating back someone thousand years, this capital of Norway has an exceptional harbor that makes visiting via boat an enjoyable and easily scheduled way of travel. In addition to Oslo’s many museums and various parks, outdoor galleries (like the popular Vigeland Sculpture Park) make viewing the numerous examples of this rich culture very easy. Shopping, great food, and a lively nightlife are also waiting until you if you are up to it. Good quality budget food can be discovered in Torggata, and offers both local and international favorites. The surrounding countryside makes a great place for cold-weather sports like skiing and snowboarding, and the locals are tolerant of less than perfect novices.

Trip Moments

When it comes to Norwegian architecture, it must be mentioned that Oslo's new opera house, which was built five years ago and designed by Norwegian construction company Snohetta, is located on the shore of the region, close to the stock exchange and central station. It is the largest cultural building in Norway after the construction of the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim in the early 14th century.

From the outside of the theatre, the most striking feature is the white sloping stone roof that rises from the Oslo Fjord. Visitors can take a stroll on the roof and enjoy the city views of Oslo. Take a boat trip to the fjord and watch the theater from the fjord. You will see the solar panels on the front of the building. In fact, this is the largest building in Norway that relies on solar power to meet energy needs. The

Opera is located on the shores of the Bjrvika area of Oslo, close to the central station. It is built like a boat and faces the small fjord of Oslo. It is home to large Norwegian operas and other cultural events. The building itself is a work of art, made of marble and glass, with a simple, modern and grandeur.

Come to the Opera House, you can walk along the top slope to the roof view platform of the Opera House, enjoy the beauty of Oslo, even skate on the roof, picnic, or quietly The sun is also excellent.

I have been described by Richard Morrison of Time magazine: I am in love. She is Norwegian, gorgeous and extremely interesting, with surprising content. She is the Oslo Opera House, pulled up from the fjord, and the stunning marble and granite roofs make her look like a glacier.

The Opera House sometimes has free open-air concerts, not only sitting on the platform while enjoying the sea view, but also enjoying the music. In the evening, you can also climb the roof of the Opera House to see the night view of Oslo.

Tips: Theater Hall opening hours: Monday to Friday 10-21 pm; Saturday 11-21 pm; Sunday 12-21 pm
