The blue and the green, and the city in-between
In Oslo, there is respect and appreciation for being able to build both a career and a family, without having to sacrifice one over the other. Oslo is a compact capital offering clean air, a car-free city center, safe neighborhoods, and bustling food and culture scene. Ski trails and slopes are a short tram ride away, and there are many small islands and paths in the woods to explore during the summer months. Norway offers one of the best public health care systems in the world and affordable education.
