3 great city breaks in one exciting holiday. Oslo, the capital of Norway, is located in southern Norway, close to the Swedish border. Stockholm is the gateway to the Baltic Sea through a stunning archipelago of some 24,000 islands and Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is part of the Öresund region and connected to the rest of Scandinvia by the impressive Öresund Bridge.
Days 1 to 3
Royal Christiania - Oslo
Royal Christiania is situated less than 100m from the Central Station in Oslo and is close to the major shopping and entertainment districts and all the major tourist attractions are within easy reach. The water front is less than 10mins walk away. The history of Oslo dates back to 1000AD and can be found in Gamlebyen (Old Town). As a Scandinavian city it will come as no surprise that architecture and design feature heavily.

The Viking Ship museum houses the world's two best-preserved wooden Viking ships built in the 9th century. For architecture the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design is arguably the best place to start! The Oslo fjord has some good water based sight seeing opportunities.
