Oslo - Norway

Oslo, Norway

City population: 526 920
Urban area population: 811 688
City area : 454 sqkm


Oslo is the capital, and the largest city in Norway. Oslo was founded by the Norwegian viking king Harald Hardråde in 1048. In 1624 the city burned down after a fire. The city was rebuilt, on the other side of the river, and was named Christiania, later Kristiania. The first university in Norway was founded in Oslo in 1811, while many other landmark buildings as Royal Place, the Parliament, National Theater and the Stock Exchange was built in the 19th century.

Very good photos Nightstar77, the photo who was taken of Oslo Plaza and Porthuset was very good, and the photo from Helsfyr was great, a good photo because of there were so many High-rise buildings there, tht they was not so beautiful exept Helsfyr Panorama.
