Summer in Norway with almost 19 hours of sunshine, I can’t ask for more.
The first two days I was charmed by the whole thing, the brightness and surprisingly warm weather lifted my spirits. Sunshine all the time. But after that I had to push myself to sleep during the ‘day’ just to get some sleep.
One of the most beautiful things about Oslo is its contemporary architecture. That may be a subjective opinion because I’m an architect. The city itself is not that big and the core can be explored in a couple of days. It was remarkable walking through the empty, early-morning streets. Although it was my first time in Oslo, it didn’t feel strange to me. Surrounded by islands, forests and mountains, you’ll find this emerging urban gem.
Through Oslo runs the river Akerselva. Along the river there are parklands and walking trails, but also remains of Oslo’s industrial history. Grünerløkka was an industrial area down by the river, today is one of Oslo’s hippest areas, known for its street art and stylish bars.
TIP: You have to visit the Vigeland Park, the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist.
I hope you like this little photo diary I put together to share my time adventuring through Oslo. Let me know if you have visited Norway and how did you like it. If anyone has any feedback I’d be so appreciative to receive your comments and questions below.
