The capital city of Norway was founded by King Harald III around 1048 and is located at the northern end of the Oslofjord. Today Oslo, home of the Nobel Peace Center Foundation, is the commercial, maritime, financial, governmental and cultural center of the country. It has a population of approx. 1.4 million and is the fastest growing city in Europe by population, due to immigration, while the Norwegian population of the city actually decreases annually. Due to its northern latitude, daylight hours vary greatly – from 18 daylight hours with hardly any real darkness in midsummer to 6 daylight hours in midwinter. Summers are mild to warm, quite often with heatwaves, and winters are, well, cold, with most snow falling from January to March – see our climate chart for details. Oslo has no less than 40 islands within its city limits and 343 lakes, the largest being Maridalsvannet. This friendly and safe city with its excellent public transport system, many parks, recreation areas, museums, galleries, restaurants, music and many other festivals, events and sights, is surrounded by beautiful forests, lakes and waterfalls..
