Oslo is the capital city of Norway. This city of approximately 550,000 inhabitants is considered to be one of the largest capital cities in the world in terms of the area covered.
Oslo has a continental climate. Summers are pleasant; the average temperature in July and August is 21°C. Winters are severe and long with heavy snowfall, and the temperature stays consistently below 0°C.
One end of the region is covered with forest area. The city centre lies on the other end close to the bay and in between is the residential area. The Oslo port is the largest cargo port of Norway and an important player in the city’s economy.
The original settlement was a little away from the current location. But, since that area was susceptible to fires, the city was rebuilt at its current location.
