My last blog ('Oslo - Part One' - click to see) showed the first part of a summer trip to Oslo in which my girlfriend and I explored some of the city, visited a few museums and took a boat cruise on the Fjord. Here's the second (and final) part of our trip.
This part picks up where we left off - after visiting the Folk Museum we went to the Viking Ship Museum rounding out day two. The following day we explored the harbour area starting off with the Nobel Peace Center, followed by the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, the Akershus Castle and the Opera House, all topped off with a lovely seafood meal looking out across the Fjord (no food photos I'm afraid!).
So please look through my photos and enjoy!
So that's the end of my trip to Oslo. It has taken a while to get round to editing these photos, but at the same time it's been quite nice to look back on them nearly a year on, rather than just editing them straight away and not looking at them for a while. Better late than never!
If you enjoy going to clean and friendly modern European cities that retain their history I think you would enjoy Oslo. I felt very comfortable walking around the relaxed atmosphere of the city, and as for the more touristy aspects I was impressed by the standard of the museums we went into and by the display of public art dotted around the city. If you like a bit of culture in a holiday then there's plenty to choose from. I would also recommend the 3 hour boat cruise. At about £35 to see the Fjord with a shrimp buffet it was a highlight for me.
