Oslo, the Capital of Norway, is situated in the heart of Scandinavia, surrounded by magnificent scenery. Bounded by the fjord that has its name and forested hills, Oslo has fantastic scenery and an unspoilt environment, with fresh air and clean water. The city has a more pleasant climate than its latitude should indicate, due to the Gulf Stream, and protection from Atlantic rainfall by mountains. The most famous sights include the Vigeland sculpture-park, the Viking Ship Museum, the Kon-Tiki Museum, and the Holmenkollen Ski Jump. Being a town of only half a million inhabitants, the centre of Oslo is small and compact, and most hotels, meeting facilities, shopping areas, and entertainment offers are within walking distance. Oslo has 9000 hotel rooms, purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities for up to 6000 delegates. As the country has a stable political climate and few safety concerns, it is a destination that is increasingly popular for international meetings. Easily accessible, Oslo is served on a regular basis by 34 airlines, with daily non stop flights from major cities in Europe. Oslo Airport is located 50 kms from the city centre, with an express train linking it to the city in 19 minutes.
