Oslo is located between the mountains and the sea. It is not only one of the greenest capitals in Europe, but also the epicenter of the famous Scandinavian style.

From sweets, you should definitely try local waffles. They are known all over the world not only because of their balanced taste, but also because of their shape in the form of hearts.
