History of Oslo

Oslo's history goes back to 1000AD, the medieval town was located east of Aker River. Closeby lies the memorial park with ruins of the St. Hallvard cathedral (from the 12th century) and the St. Olav convent.

Oslo used to be thriving town, until a dramatic fire in 1642 destroyed everything. The town was after rebuilt by the Akershus fortress, and the Danish King Christian IV decided to name the town Christiania. The city was renamed Oslo in 1925 and developed rapidly after World War II.

Today, Oslo is the centre of Norwegian trade, banking, industry, and shipping. Oslo Harbour is the largest, as well as the busiest, in the country. The leading industries are the production of consumer goods and the electrotechnical and graphic industries.
