However, considering the entire metropolitan area, commonly called the "Greater Oslo region" (Stor-Osloregionen), which extends far beyond the limits of the municipality, we have a total population of 1,546,706 inhabitants (2018).

The geographical boundaries of Oslo county and the municipality are coincident. The city received the European Green Capital Award for 2019. Oslo is located at the bottom of the Oslofjord, a fjord within the Skagerrak basin.

The fjord is almost cut by the Nesodden peninsula facing the city to the south; in all other directions, however, Oslo is surrounded by green hills and mountains. Within the city limits there are 40 islands, the largest of which is Malmøya which measures 0.56 km², and 343 lakes the largest of which is Maridalsvannet, which measures 3.91 km², this lake also represents the major source of drinking water supply for a large part of western Oslo, mainly Vestre Aker and Nordre Aker. The most important river is the Akerselva.
