Hey everyone ! During your stay in Sweden don’t miss the opportunity to see the city of Oslo, the capital city of Norway. Oslo is only 3h30 away by bus from the wonderful city of Gothenburg. So here is what I planned to do in 24 hours, took into account the fact thatyou can walk.
#1 Opera House of Oslo
The famous Opera House of Oslo is truly stunning, by the sea, all white. It’s so nice to walk on the rooftop and lay down for a few minutes, looking at the horizon and the city. You can eat on the rooftop too, right on top of the city of Oslo.
#2 Akershus fortress
You can walk by the waterside until you arrive to the Akershus fortress (free entrance), and Akershus castle (for student are 50 Norwish krona). In the castle you can visit the Akershus Castle church, the Royal Museum and different rooms.
#3 City Hall
After walking around the fortress and castle heade towards the City Hall and the port. If you want to eat something or do some shopping you can take the direction of Aaker Brygge, which is a dynamic area really close to the City Hall. You can buy food, sit near the port or on the bench in front of the City hall contemplating the sea.
#4 Royal Palace
It only take a 10 minutes walk from the City Hall to go to the Royal Palace, enjoy a little walk on the park behind it and rest a little. After a little break, go down the big avenue Karl Johans Gatan to see the National Gallery (close on Monday) and see the famous painting by E.Munch, the scream.
I follow the street until the Oslo University’s buildings, …..And finish your day as it started: on top of the Opera !
One day, One city, Challenge accepted !
