Oslo is one of the wealthiest cities in Europe, thanks to the country’s thriving oil industry. This is visible in its glass-covered skyscrapers, its new subway and, of course, in a whole bunch of trendy restaurants, bars and shops. This beautiful city is situated right next to the Oslo fjord and it’s constantly expanding and developing.
