Oslo City Reviews

    Expensive but nice city

    The city is small, expensive but really nice. All new, cannot see much of the old part. Apparently it's not that touristic, which is reflected in the lack of touristic attractions and tours, but still I think that is what makes it more wonderful.

    Insider Tip:Walk the city! It's small.

    A very good surprise

    We didn't expect much from Oslo which is not as famous as Stockholm or Copenhaguen. But we had a very good surprise. The city has a lot of green spots and picnic areas. People are very friendly.

    Insider Tip:Buy salmon and seafood and go for a picnic in a park! Go from one island to another with the public boats. Until Oct 13, very interesting Munch retrospective

    The most expensive city I've ever been to. One-hour city transport ticket (bus, tram, subway) - 4 EUR. Burger King meal - 20 EUR. Weather was horrible. However, the city is beautiful, and should be visited in July/August - April was just too early and too cold to enjoy. The Opera is a must-see, as well as Akershus Fortress overlooking the city and the Vigeland sculpture park. We made it 5 minutes too late for the Holmenkollen SkiJump Museum, so make sure you're there before 16:00.

    Insider Tip:1. No money exchange offices at Ryge Airport, and nobody accepts EUR, only Norwegian Kroner. However, everything can be paid with credit cards. Many places/business refuse Electron cards. 2. Vietnam House Restaurant - great food, decent prices. Bernt Ankersgate 6B.

    Definitely recommend Oslo!

    Oslo was really cool. It was a bit windy but that's expected. We were there for 16 of Mai which was really cool to be a part of the parades and festivities. Oslo was much smaller than I thought and that made it easy to explore. The Holmenkollen Ski Jump was amazing to see. The views of the city from up there were incredible. I highly recommend visiting Oslo.

    Insider Tip:Know a local and just explore. I have friend who lives outside Oslo and he helped showed us around. He also speaks Norwegian so that made it much easier too.

    I have no idea about OSLO

    I regret that I should cancel my trip to Oslo due to lack of time. I hope someday it will be realized.
