What do people like (and dislike) about Oslo?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Oslo, they replied...

"Expats and digital nomads generally like the high quality of life, excellent public transportation, and beautiful natural surroundings in Oslo. They appreciate the city's cleanliness, safety, and well-organized infrastructure. The work-life balance, strong social welfare system, and focus on sustainability are also attractive features for many expats. The city's vibrant cultural scene, with numerous museums, galleries, and events, offers plenty of opportunities for entertainment and socializing. Expats also enjoy the outdoor activities available in and around Oslo, such as hiking, skiing, and cycling. However, there are some aspects of living in Oslo that expats and digital nomads may dislike. The high cost of living, particularly for housing, food, and entertainment, can be a significant challenge for those on a budget. The cold and dark winters can also be difficult to adjust to, especially for those coming from warmer climates. Additionally, some expats may find it challenging to make friends and integrate into Norwegian society, as locals can be perceived as reserved and distant. The language barrier can also be an issue, as learning Norwegian can be difficult for some, although most Norwegians speak English fluently. Lastly, the job market in Oslo can be competitive, and it may be challenging for expats to find employment, particularly if they do not speak Norwegian or have specialized skills in high demand industries," remarked another expat who made the move to Oslo, Norway.
