10 Things you should definitely do in Oslo!
The capital of Norway changes dramatically depending on the seasons, but remains always beautiful!
You can see green meadows and hot summer days to snowy landscapes and many degrees below zero. Although this era is considered to be “transient” with mercury going up considerably, it is understood that you should not forget to pack some warmer clothes in your suitcase. Moreover, Norway’s weather is unpredictable. But let’s forget the weather and let’s see what are the 10 Things you should definitely do in Oslo!
1) Frognerparken Park
The enormous city center park is the perfect spot to start exploring Oslo. Enjoy the various statues and sculptures, and when the sun does not show his teeth, enjoy your picnic with the locals in the vast expanse of grass. “Frognerparken” is also the best choice for a great afternoon stroll.
2) Bogstadveien Street
Oslo’s heart beats on that particular street with its tough name. The “Bogstadveien” and the surrounding streets are the boutiques of the largest fashion houses, while the city’s trendiest faces are frequented in the cafes and bars of the region. Here, Ferrari, Jaguar and Rolls Royce remind you that you are in one of the most expensive areas of the capital.
3) National Gallery
For Arts lovers, a trip to Oslo would be incomplete without a visit to the National Gallery that hosts some of the country’s most important paintings and exhibits. See the works of Edward Muck, one of the most important expressionists who has painted the famous painting “The Scream”.
4) Aker Brygge
Close to the old harbor is the Aker Brygge, the perfect place to drink beer and taste some traditional dishes. Seeing the port with dozens of boats and ships, it is a point of the city that both tourists and locals love. From the most “live” areas throughout the day.
5) Viking Ship Museum
The rebuilt Viking ship along with the detailed history of Norwegian history make this museum one of the most popular destinations for those who want to learn about Vikings and the history of the Scandinavians. Many museums are located in the surrounding area, and after visiting the museums you can relax on Paradis Bukta Beach in the area.
6) National theater
Definitely the best place to see a play or opera. This beautiful venue is home to many different shows. Dress appropriately and enjoy the most cultural side of Oslo.
7) Theater Kafeen
It is right next to the National Theater and is a traditional Norwegian restaurant and café that is part of the city’s history. Ibsen also drank his daily coffee here. A string quartet best welcomes you in the afternoons and promises you a different night.
The islands that make up Fjord around Oslo are a unique example of the beauty of Norwegian nature. You can visit them by ferry or boat at very low prices. Itineraries for islands are very common with Langayene being one of the most popular in the summer. See visitors enjoying the beach by doing various sports, or simply enjoying the Scandinavian sunshine.
9) Akershus Fortress
The fortress was built in 1299 by King Magnusson with its “sturdy” walls protecting the city from then on. Take a stroll in the gardens of the fortress and enjoy the 700-year history.
During winter, it is the right location for skating and snowboarding. For those who love the most adventure, they can ski on the slopes of the hill. You can rent a sled on the day or by the hour, while you can enjoy a hot chocolate and wine to cope with the cold. In the summer months, the area really blooms from the green.
