Oslo, the capital of Norway, is a city where modern architecture blends seamlessly with its historical heritage. And it’s all surrounded by the natural beauty of forests, fjords, and hills. While there’s no shortage of sights to see in Oslo, here are three gems that you simply can’t miss.

The Vigeland Park

The Vigeland Park is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, Gustav Vigeland. This open-air gallery features more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite, and wrought iron. Vigeland’s work explores the human experience, capturing moments of life, emotion, and relationships with striking realism and expressive force. 

The Fram Museum

This museum tells the stories of Norwegian polar exploration. The star exhibit? The Fram, the strongest wooden ship ever built and the first ship to sail closest to both the North and South Poles. At the museum, you can even go inside the famous ship for a closer look at what the explorer’s life was like.

The Oslo Opera House

Designed by the renowned architectural firm Snøhetta, the building is an iceberg-like structure that seems to rise out of the waters of the Oslo fjord. Visitors are encouraged to walk on its sloping marble roof, which offers panoramic views of Oslo and the fjord.
