Oslo is placed in an amphitheatre-like location, with the city centre in the base close to the Oslo fjord, and residential areas expanding from there up to the mountains.
The Oslo fjord is a creek of the Skagerrak bay, stretching inland from the North Sea near Ã˜resund and the Baltic Sea. Oslo has a remarkable archipelago of islands, which in summer becomes the city's preferred recreational area.
The city centre is surrounded by Oslo Central Station (Oslo S) to the east, the Royal Palace) to the west and the waterfront (from Akershus fortress to Aker brygge) to the south. It's a quite compact area and easy to walk around. Many of the neighbourhoods close to the centre also have places of interest and tourist attractions and are easy to reach by public transports.
BEST TIME TO GO
Oslo has pleasant summer days, mostly in July and August. From November to April itâ€™s very cold and days are short. However, itâ€™s the perfect time for the winter sports practice in the surrounding areas of the city.
