The land of the midnight Sun,Oslo Norway

Happy Summer People!!!

If I can decide on a place with the symphony of yacht horns, charging stations for electric boats, the calm of church bells, Tesla’s running as in taxi, and an epic fashionable crowd running errands alongside colored houses and ever screaming kleptomaniac Seagulls. It has to be Oslo, Norway

Oslo has all the elements of a Scandinavian European capital yet it paints a vibrant & distinct picture of old-world charm & modernity.

If you are going in summer you are in for a treat from the land of the midnight sun. But don’t be fooled by the shining Sun as the shops and restaurants will be closed on time so plan ahead.

Special mentions, The exorbitant prices for everything will give you chills but the taste of a good time will bring you back to life.

It was a perfect long weekend getaway for me, I tried to capture Oslo through my lens. I also listed some must-do places and experiences we indulged in, for you to check.

Oslo Fjord tour to discover unique islands on a Boat while sipping prosecco. It was a fun thing and must try for the experience on the water.

We bought the tour on GetYourGuide. You might check it out for options.

The Vigeland Park is one of Europe’s most significant sculpture parks and displays the works of Norweigan artist Gustav Vigeland. This is also known as Frogner Park.

His work depicts the Simple pleasures of family life, different roles we play in life, Kids, Father, Mother, Grandparents, etc. from Birth to death and beyond.

A woman was showing her kid these sculptures and said “some people are throwing their kids away which is very bad” 🙂

I couldn’t get over the expressions carved in stone.

Oslo has such a vivid food culture, you might get any cuisine you crave for. We found some really cool places to eat and drink.

Apart from these, If looking for pocket-friendly Indian Food in place in Jaipur, Oslo. They have a Buffet every day which is quite fulfilling and the location is amazing as well.

Oslo Street Food is another fabulous food joint with multi-cuisine food trucks and game joints.

  3. Oh, my Dog! After reading the Barcelona post, Oslo at first seemed austere … until you got to the sculpture garden. The artist, and then your photos, so perfectly captured the emotions of his models. And then the almond croissant! I’m binge-reading your blog!!!
    BTW, your writing is captivating too. I had to read your first paragraph (if you don’t count the greeting as the first) over again as it conjured up a visual image that couldn’t be captured in a photo.
