NUMBER 10: OSLO

A vibrant and beautiful city in the North of Europe. It can be cold, but the people are warm. They have a typical no-nonsense attitude and speak English very well. Welcome in Oslo at the head of the oslofjord.

The city is know for its green space ans museums. Visit the Viking ship museum or he Norwegian Maritime museum to explore the past and the present of norway in an interactive museum experience.

More into a extreme vacation memory? book a day at the Holmenkollbakken, a ski-jumping hill with panoramic views of the famous  fjord. The ski museum in Holmenkollen, located underneath the famous ski jump, is the oldest of its kind in the world. The museum presents more than 4,000 years of skiing history, Norwegian polar exploration artifacts and an exhibition on snowboarding and modern skiing.

The observation deck on top of the jump tower offers panoramic views of Oslo. The best view in the city?


Rachel went to oslo in 2018 for a 6 months Erasmus experience:

Rachel in Oslo (Norway): "You can see up to 10 Tesla a day!"

Travelling is a part of youth... Here is the proof of this with the story of Rachel's adventures, who went on an Erasmus trip to Oslo during her studies.<

Why is that?

"After my high school years, I decided to move to the United States to live with a host family for a year. This exchange brought me a lot of personal benefits. For my Erasmus destination, I wanted to discover a totally different culture and explore nature. Norway seemed perfect to me, especially since the school offered was of a very good level and I wanted above all to improve my CV. Norway is also ranked as the happiest country in the world, so I wanted to try this lifestyle."

Best memory

"Without hesitation, I would say the landscapes are breathtaking. Oslo is a city but there are lots of green places, mountains and lakes, which is absolutely great for getting a breath of fresh air. Norway has the highest concentration of Tesla in the world! At first I thought it was a bit unrealistic but when you walk down the street you can see up to 10 Tesla's a day, it's unbelievable!"
