FOR DESIGN LOVERS – OSLO, NORWAY

If you’re a design fanatic, Oslo belongs at the top of your summer travel list. The Norwegian city is known for its architecture, museums, open spaces, and contemporary shops. Practically every room you enter will be a unique (and Instagrammable) design moment.

To the rest of the world, Norway is where Mother Nature has created one of her finest works of art. Against such a wonderful natural canvas, it’s easy to forget that man can also be artistic, and many a visitor has been left surprised to discover that Oslo is home to world-class museums and galleries rivalling anywhere else on the European art trail.

But even here Mother Nature has managed to make her mark, and Oslo is fringed with forests, hills and lakes awash with opportunities for hiking, cycling, skiing and boating.

Add to this mix a thriving cafe and bar culture, top-notch restaurants, nightlife options ranging from opera to indie rock, and a large and visible immigrant community who add their own colourful touch to the city and the result is a thoroughly intoxicating place in which to forget about the fjords for a while.

Oslo Opera House is a must visit.

The place to stay at is the Continental Hotel, Oslo
