Oslo is considered the center of maritime activity in Europe. There are over 980 maritime companies in Oslo employing about 8,600 people. Over 6,000 ships dock in Port Oslo every year with over 5 million passengers and 6 million tons of cargo. The city per capita GDP is one of the highest in Europe and in 2009 it became the most expensive city in the world. The Greater Oslo Region has a land area of 3,646 square miles and a population of 1.8 million people. Oslo is the largest and most important city in Norway in terms of scientific, governmental and economic growth. The rich culture, the well-developed road system and the forested inland of Oslo make it a unique and dynamic city to spend a holiday or to enjoy while on vacation. The old city dates back to 1000 AD. It has survived fires, name changes and economic slumps. Oslo is filled with Viking history, ancient mariners and beautiful scenery. The inhabitants of this precious Norwegian gem appreciate their culture and have built a modern city that reflects the hard work and the foresight of their ancestors.
