Oslo’s population hits 600,000

The population of Norway’s capital has officially risen to 600,000, following the birth over the weekend of a baby girl at the National Hospital (Rikshospitalet).

Little Stella Vartdal was born on Sunday at 6:08am and went into the history books as the 600,000th resident of Oslo. That earned her a visit from Oslo Mayor Fabian Stang, who called her arrival “a milestone” for the city.

“The fact that the city keeps growing, with people moving here and having children here, is a healthy sign and a compliment to the city,” Stang claimed.

The baby weighed in at 3,470 grams, was 50 centimeters long and born to parents Lars Olav Vartdal and Miriam Nordgård.
