Oslo can be described as another diamond of Northern Europe, filled with modern buildings and little parks. As Oslo is a young city, you will not notice a lot of hoary houses symbolizing the history but there is a large range of contemporary architecture that you can definitely keep your eyes on.
The Oslo Opera House is one of the examples how modernism compliments the city located on banks of the lakes.
Also, the Ekenbergparken (sculpture park) opens a beautiful and marvellous panoramic view to the growing city and is a keeper of works from artists, expressing their approach towards the developing society.
