The oldest part of Oslo lies north of the thirteenth century fortress Akershus and is the heart of the city. The main street is Karl Johans Gate, through which you can glance at some of the best buildings of the city, namely the Royal Palace, the Rococo National Theatre, and the University built in 1851. The historical city center is perfect to walk in while you can reach all the surrounding areas by car. In Oslo’s do-not-miss list, is the famous Munch Museum, where many major works of the Norwegian artists are displayed, including two versions of his notorious The Scream of Nature. If you want to deepen your knowledge of another top Norwegian artist, go to Vigeland Park - inside the wider Frognerparken – and walk in this enormous green area where you can see 192 works in wrought iron created by Gustav Vigeland: the sight will be astounding. Oslo, however, is a city that grants you a nice amount of fun as well. Some ten kilometers away from the city there is a theme park called TusenFryd with an absolutely stunning rollercoaster and other daring attractions. Another item in your to-do list in Oslo is a little cruise on the fjord, an experience necessary to understand Norwegian culture. Finally, Oslo is a perfect destination for going shopping. In the streets of its city center you will find each and every kind of shop, from huge malls to small little shops by Karl Johans Gate to the fashionable boutiques in Grünerløkka quarter.
