Norway is known for it's ice and snow, midnight sun and A-HA   :)
Norway's contribution to sport and peace work has also been noticed around the world.

There is no midnight sun in Oslo, though. Only the northern parts of Norway have midnight sun in the summer. But Oslo has bright summers. And dark winters.
