    Review of Oslo

    It is easy to move around with buses and trams penetrating National Theater stop. Famous opera house gives people interests of climbing up to its roof, presenting beautiful sights to the port. Akersbrygge area has a series of flamboyant buildings.

    Insider Tip:It is gorgeous to have a look at the city centre from the royal palace after the change of guards.

    Beautiful City

    I love Norway and espaecially Oslo! It was terribly cold and it's kind of expensive but that are things you know, before you plan on where you want to go.

    Insider Tip:Walk on top of the Opera

    Nice city for a quick stop.

    It's a nice place, but still just another city. Basically stop here for a night or two at most on your way to Bergen.

    For Americans, hard to adapt to the sunlight coming in all day and half the night. Everything was white and the light was sometimes making it hard to sleep. Good place to stay over all.

    Oslo, or: Fun city, but you can do it in three days.

    Not the biggest city in the world, but for a city its size it has a fair amount to do. Expensive as hell, so be prepared to spend money.

    Insider Tip:Drinking is crazy expensive in Oslo, and there are very few places that sell beer for less than $9 US a pint. But one such place is Taxi Take-Away. It's located across the street from Haussmania, which is this really cool squat full of artists and other non-establishment types, so do your drinking there. Also, a warning: there are a lot of street prostitutes in central Oslo near the train station/the nearby streets, so prepared to be hassled a lot if you decide to walk around there at night.
