Oslo Ski Feast in the Land of the Vikings

Holmenkollen Ski Resort, in the mountainous part of Oslo, hosted the World Ski Championships between February 23 and March 6, 2013.

It is not in vain that Oslo, the capital of Norway, which has the world's largest oil deposits after Saudi Arabia, has the title of 'Europe's winter capital'. They have succeeded very well in turning the cold winter conditions into a colorful daily life. Of course, there is no doubt that the small population is effective in this creativity. With a population of only 500 thousand, Oslo is visited by millions of people every year for more than 50 museums, art galleries, Vigeland Sculpture Park, theatre, music and ski races. Being a maritime nation, the Norwegians are never idle in the summer.

Although Oslo is snowy and icy for six or seven months of the year, there are 177 boats registered. From this it follows that every family has a boat and as soon as the ice melts, they go to their summer homes on the beaches outside the fjords. The passion for adventure of the Norwegians, who are the grandchildren of Vikings who sailed and rowed to the Anatolian shores thousands of years ago, is not limited to maritime. Ice skating and skiing are also a way of life… Tourists who want to ice skating can also skate comfortably in the frozen small fields in the city center. Holmenkollen, one of the many ski resorts in the country where ski races have been held since 1892, is in the mountainous part of Oslo.

Preparations for the Holmenkollen World Ski Championship, which will be held for the fourth time between February 23 and March 6 this year, have been started months in advance; The roads were renewed, the tracks were cleaned, all checks were made to avoid any malfunctions at the last minute. This championship has another feature as follows: During the week of the ski races, various festivals were held in the city center.
