The history present in Oslo posters

There are some doubts as to the meaning behind the name of Oslo, as it may either mean the field below the hill or the field of the Gods. The city was founded in 1000 AD, and by 1048, the then King Harald III established a trading place in the town. By 1300 when the construction of the Akershus fortress and castle was started, the city was already an important trade centre in Scandinavia. You can see this in Oslo posters such as Illuminated Akershus Fortress, Oslo. This item can work wonders in any residential or corporate setting. As already mentioned, Oslo possesses a tremendous mix of history and modernity, which plays a large part in endowing the city with its particular character. The Opera House is one of the best examples of great modern Norwegian design. View from Oslo Opera House at Night is a specific Oslo poster that highlights this aspect, as well as Oslo Opera House by Night, with both serving a great reminder of how this metropolis is not just beautiful, but also very inspirational for all types of art.

The Tiger City

Despite the fact that the nearest wild and free tigers are thousands of kilometers away, Oslo's nickname is actually Tigerstaden, which means Tiger City. Although accounts vary, the most agreed-upon reason behind this peculiar moniker is that the Norwegian poet Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson described a fight between a horse and a tiger in his 1870 poem "Sidste Sang". The tiger represented the dangerous city and the horse the safe countryside. Although the dangerous does not really apply nowadays, it is equated to Oslo being full of exciting energy, which you will see in Norway posters. Even though Oslo is the capital, it does not mean the Norwegian love of nature and the outdoors does not apply here. Vast untouched forest surrounds the urban center and can be reached easily on public transport. Vigeland Sculpture Park in Oslo, Norway is another Norway poster that display's the country's and the capital's love for having nature even within a metropolis.

More highlights in Oslo posters

As the capital, Oslo is also home to Norway's King Harald V and Queen Sonja and The Royal Palace. The Oslo poster aptly named Royal Palace exhibits this iconic landmark in a wonderful light, rendered in gorgeous black and white which makes it a bit more dramatic and thus creating visual weight and character. Another wonderful thing about the city is that nature is on your doorstep because as soon as you step out into the streets, you are reminded that Norway’s beautiful nature is just around the corner. Oslo Fjord lies at the bottom of the city and mountains surround the rest of the town. Norwegians pride themselves on their close contact with nature, while maintaining a modern and innovative infrastructure which you can view in Oslo posters like Oslo cityscape by Night, Norway or Illuminated Oslo.
