Culture & local gems , Less than 1 hour walking
Discover Oslo, the capital of Norway, a gem set among the wood-covered hills and fjord waters dotted with numerous islands. We will be captivated by its monuments and numerous sights.
- Munch Museum
- Vigeland Park
- Oslo Opera House
- Our first stop is the Munch Museum opened in 1963, a century after the birth of the only Norwegian artist to be known at an international level. There is a rich collection of paintings, etchings and lithographs kindly donated to the city by the painter.
- We will then reach the Vigeland park for a guided walking tour. The park covers 32 hectares and there are over 200 sculptures created by sculptor Gustav Vigeland, who also designed the park. The artist never explained his work, so visitors can interpret them as they please. It will be interesting and fascinating to discover this world of stone, iron and bronze human beings. Among the most famous sculptures, there is the 17 metre-high Monolith at the centre of this beautiful park.
- We will then move towards one of the main sights of the city - the futuristic Opera House. Designed by Snøhetta, who also designed the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt, the Opera House covers 38,500 square metres and has 1,100 rooms. The main hall can sit 1,350 people. The building won several prizes such as the award in the culture category at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona in 2008, the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2009 and the EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture.
