Oslo, the capital Norway. Potentially one of the best known capital cities of the world, always used in games to flaw your opponent with your knowledge. Why not head there to explore, and find out exactly what has made this city so infamous.
You will be staying in the Anker Apartment, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4/5. You will be staying here for a total of 4 nights, so you will definitely have enough time to see most of the things that you want to see. This hotel is also located in Oslo, close to some of the attractions, so it’s ideal for a trip like this.
Whilst you’re in Oslo you definitely have to try the local food. Norwegian cuisine is quite well known for some of its crazier items, but some of the more regular food is really good! I particularly like kjøttkaker, which are really big Norwegian Meatballs. Lapskaus is also really good if it’s cold; it’s basically a really rich beef stew. If you want a restaurant with a view (probably to treat yourself) I would recommend going to Finstua at Frognerseteren, they have really amazing views.
If you get the chance, definitely book tickets to see an opera show at The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet. It is one of the most famous buildings in Norway, as well as being famed for having hosted some of the best performances in recent times.
There are, of course, also plenty of museums for you to go and visit if you want to learn a bit about the history of Norway. I would definitely recommend any of the museums focused around the Vikings and that era of life in Norway because it’s some of the most famous, yet undiscovered history around.
