Arable fields, vast forests and the untouched nature areas surrounding the city are only twenty minutes from the center. They provide recreational opportunities that are frequently taken advantage of by the city’s inhabitants, as well as increasingly by visitors. Oslo offers many well-known sights such as the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Viking Ship Museum and the Munch Museum.
