Norway Day 9 & 10 - Oslo

Added: September 14, 2008

Tags: Norway castle city museum photos
We spent whole Saturday 26th and morning 27th of July in Oslo. Weather was unbelievable - clear sky and hot.

We bought 1 day Oslo Pass that allowed us unlimited travel by public transport and free entry to most of attractions in Oslo. Our exploration could begin.

I have a lot of photos from Oslo and I struggled for a while to decide how I am going to split it to pages. Previously used Morning/Afternoon won't work so I decided to make a split on areas of interest regardless time, location and how many times we have been there.

Buildings everywhere

This page shows things that could be generally named as buidings :-) That does not mean that all concrete rectangular things other 2 pages show are not buildings, they just fitted better to different categorization.

Open air musem

This museum is also located at Bigd√ły, but there are no ships, so it will be featured here. It is the biggest one we have seen in Norway and Iceland.

I am proud of photo on the right. No flash, no tripod, just handheld 1/2s :-)

Akershus Castle

We've visited Oslo Castle. The best thing about it was that no guided tour was there. We saved time not waiting for its start and going through in our own pace. I would say it was the first place from whole trip we actually saved some time :-)

City

A few assorted snapshots from Oslo I took during a course of day. No attempt to identify them was made.
