33 thoughts on “Oslo: A Culture Trip to Norway’s Capital”

    1. Nice! 🙂 Which place do you like most? My most favourite one is the Vigeland Park. Pretty cool, especially on a nice summer evening 🙂 The opera house and the Viking ships are interesting too.

  1. We are going to Norway near the end of May. We will definitely be visiting some of these places, and hopefully some off-the-beaten-path places as well. We plan to car camp from Oslo heading towards Bergen. We will have a couple of days in Oslo to see these sights. Thanks for your post.

    1. My pleasure! The Oslo-Bergen route is really scenic. I did it with the Oslo-Bergen railway and I must say it’s one of the most beautiful train trips I have ever made 🙂
      By car, I think you will have more time for exploring. My favourite part of this trip is the Hardangervidda plateau. It looks impressive, even in summer when most of the snow is melted away revealing massive lakes.

    1. Yes, it’s indeed expensive! In comparison to Germany, the price is nearly doubled. But it’s still more affordable than in Switzerland 🙂 How about Finland? I guess the price is as high as in Norway and Denmark, right?

      1. Prices are high here but Norway is the most expensive place I’ve ever been to! Switzerland was certainly expensive though, too. Maybe it’s a tie, for the things we did and spent money on 😄

  2. Love the Vigeland, could have spent a whole day there! You’ve captured the “one day in Oslo” really well. 🙂 What’s your favourite Vigeland sculpture? Mine was the angry man with the flying babies. Is this your second time in Norway??

    1. Nope 🙂 Just revise my post about Oslo. The Fountain is obviously my favourite sculpture. Followed by the Monolith. When I was there, Pokemon Go had just been released in Europe. And it was fun watching people walked around the Monolith as if they were performing some kind of ritual 🙂

      1. Oh yea, your fountain is absolutely gorgeous. You should send it to National Geographic. 😊
        Tell me about it. Pokémon is horrendous, my husband also used to follow it when we were on our travels… 😂🙄

  3. This is my second attempt at a comment. I hope it will be posted. I’ve experienced posting comments on your page sometimes, I wonder if it’s a problem with your site?

    Wonderful photos as always, Len. I love the idyllic photo of the boats in Bygdoy island. I’d love to visit that place myself. I spent a day in Oslo last summer when traveling to Svalbard but we didn’t really see much in the city except the center and opera house from the outside, because we spent most of our day in a lovely island called Hovedoya. I love the Nordic countries, especially their nature, serenity and culture! The only thing I really didn’t like while I was there were the prices hehe – about 4 times as expensive as Poland so it was really painful 😀

    1. Thanks you for informing about that, Pooja! I will forward this information to the WP engineer. So far I haven’t changed anything in the setting, so I guess it might be a WP’s issue.
      Indeed, my only concern when travelling in Scandinavia is the cost, especially in city like Oslo. It can easily ruin your bank account. The only place that I find less affordable is Switzerland 😛

  4. I’ve heard about some of the best Oslo has to offer several years back, but it is your blog that makes the city now among the top destinations in my Europe wish list. Your photos are so amazing and pretty they make me want to book that flight all the way to the Norwegian capital right away!

    1. Thank you, Bama 🙂 I just came back from Japan. Unfortunately, I could not try the Muscat grapes in Okayama that you mentioned. It’s not in season right now. But I tried the dried version. It’s good as well. Their strawberries are also awesome. I can say they are the tastiest strawberries that I have ever eaten!

      1. It’s the other way around for me. When I was there, strawberry was not in season. I guess we both have to return to Japan one day — I in spring and you in autumn. 🙂

  5. We’ve just been back from a city trip to Oslo and it is nice to see it through eyes as well. To me the Oslo Opera House and the Vigeland left a deep impression. I love the way you captured both, stunning contrast and light in your photographs!

  6. Hello Len.

    I agree with you that Vigeland Park – the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, but the sculpture park in Parikkala, there are nearly 500 sculptures.

    In Raahe, Matti Lepistö has made 250 sculptures.

    As you see, my Finland offers many surprises for those, who want to explore it and find its hidden gems. If you have some day time, then check my about-page. It is full of information about Finland and me. It contains plenty of photos!

    Have a nice day!

    1. Both parks are really impressive! The one in Parikkala looks like a whole village 🙂 Do you know whether the park still exists now?

    1. Unfortunately, I only have the photo of the hallway 🙂 The wooden main chapel is simple, with little decorations. There is no window either, so the room is pretty dark.

  7. The picture are amazing in the blog. The oslo opera house is also a great spot to travel and vigeland park is fantastic. Oslo is great place for tourist destination.
