On the top of Oslo

I had a meeting today with Kjell Rusti, CEO of Steria Norway. Entering their reception desk I noticed that the view out of the window at the 23rd floor was breath taking. Since I have a mobile phone with camera, I could not resist taking a picture from the top of Oslo – capital of Norway. In the picture you can see the fjord ending right down town of the city and the ferry boat regularly cruising from Denmark and Germany. Right now the harbour is under construction as the new Opera House is beginning to form its magnificent shape as an architectural new monument.

On the net at www.fodors.com miniguides, I found this description of Oslo which I find excellent: “World-class Oslo, a town of 500,000, has become good at survival and rebirth throughout its nearly 1,000-year history. In 1348, plague wiped out half the population, and it has burned down too many times to count. Nearly destroyed entirely by a fire in 1624, it was redesigned and renamed Christiania by Denmark’s royal builder, King Christian IV. After that it slowly gained prominence as the largest and most economically significant city in Norway.” A Yahoo user from Germany says: “This is the best city I ever been to. Fantastic surroundings, very clean and friendly beautiful people. The perfect place to take your kids. They will be safe and not bored. If you want nightlife go another place(even though there is good places) This is a city very suited for families.Quite expensive but it’s worth evey penny. Make sure too go to the resistant Museum, Bygdoy and just stroll around in the city and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.” A norwegian couldn’t have said it a better way!
