City of Oslo in Norway
Oslo is the largest city and the capital of Norway. Founded in 1048 it is closing in on its 1000th birthday.
It is east to travel from Oslo to both Sweden and Denmark, and easy to combine with a general tour of Europe.
If you can only visit one area of Norway, Bergen would, if possible, be a better option if you also will be able to visit the Fjords.
If you have time to visit both cities, you should consider taking a train ride across the mountain during daytime as it gives you view of Norwegian mountain nature.
