Oslo It is that city that stars most of the Bestsellers of the writer Jo Nesbo. As in the novels, Oslo is a transitional city, with two new areas under development (Bjorvika and Tjuvholmen) that are becoming increasingly known for their elegant design, its modern atmospheres and its innovative restaurants.
While oil money has transformed many fortunes into Norway, its restaurants and its culture have had a much slower development. In recent years, however, the opening of new places where the city's Chefs are able to offer true delicacies has made even Michelin stars light up their most special nights. On the other hand, numerous festivals and peculiar places, such as Sukkerbiten, have created a flourishing music scene.
The dark days of winter give way to spring which is the perfect time to go enjoy picnics in port, navigate the fjord and people watch with a cold beer in the beach area of Aker Brygge. Oslo is at the inner end of the fjord, and is flanked by the green hills of Oslomarka. For being a capital, it has an impressive amount of green space and the locals know how to get the most out of it.
You must take a walk along Karl Johan. This is the main street in Oslo. After tasting some sweet in one of their patisseries, head towards the Parliament. Then you can go to the University and the National theater. As in other places in the world, don't miss the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace.
