Oslo is the capital of Norway, and the country’s political and financial hub. It should come as no surprise that Oslo, in this technologically advanced nation, was the first capital city in the world to offer its inhabitants super-fast 4G technology. This big-hearted city offers everything a capital should, including vibrant nightlife, flourishing commerce, key educational institutions, a rich cultural scene, proximity to the natural delights of mountains, fjords and forests, and – on top of all that – an international outlook.
Each year thousands of tourists flock to Oslo’s must-see attractions, including the Munch Museum, the Vigeland sculptures in Frogner Park, and the world’s most famous ski-jumping hill, Holmenkollen. The Bygdøy peninsula, in the south-west of the city, is home to the Kon-Tiki Museum, documenting Thor Heyerdal’s famous expeditions , as well as the Viking Ship Museum and the Fram Museum, which commemorates Norway’s history of exploration and trailblazing across the oceans and in the Arctic and Antarctic. Through the ages, the Vikings, Heyerdal and the Norwegian polar heroes Nansen and Amundsen were fearless, restless pioneers who sought out new knowledge, broke the boundaries and showed the way forward – they strived to “touch tomorrow”.
As proud hosts of the 2015 EL Congress, Oslo can offer its guests experiences to suit every taste.
