A sightseeing excursion of Oslo in English will convince you that it is one of the richest cities in Europe. You can tell from the many glass skyscrapers, trendy restaurants, bars, and boutiques. The Aker-Brugge area is especially prominent with a beautiful waterfront, art galleries and a sculpture park.
The unique Viking Ship Museum and open-air ethnomuseum with 150 traditional Norwegian houses will leave vivid impressions. The guide will show you must-see sights of any excursion: Akershus Castle, the Royal Palace, the Norwegian Center for Design and Architecture.
Of particular interest are the City Hall (where the Nobel Prize was awarded) and the Opera theater (with white sloping building resembling an iceberg). 1001guide recommends that you go up to the roof of the theater with your guide to explore the city and the Oslofjord.
