ABOUT OSLO


The Norwegian capital Oslo will be the venue of the forthcoming FOREST EUROPE Ministerial Conference on 14-16 June 2011. The city is situated at the head of the Oslo Fjord and surrounded by forested hills. Its exceptional location provides great opportunities for outdoor activities and recreation in all seasons. Oslo has just over half a million inhabitants, a quite low number compared to other European capitals. But it is also one of the largest: Oslo covers an area of 450 square kilometers - most of it forest and cultivable land.
