Based on my time spend in Oslo – here are my recommendations for a day in Oslo.
- Visit The Frogner Park (The Vigeland Park) . It is a beautiful park filled with over 200 sculptures , rose garden and beautiful grounds. The park is called Frogner Park and the statutes are referred to as Vigeland Installations . Initially I thought these were two different parks ! If you are in Oslo – highly recommend a visit to this park . I found this to be one of the highlights of Oslo.
- Visit The Royal Palace of Oslo – Beautiful building and the street leading up to it is cobble stone street with lots of stores and restaurants to both sides. Great place to people watch and to get a sense for the city.
- Visit Himkok Cocktail Bar – Ranked as top 20th cocktail bar in the world by CNN. The best cocktail bar I been to !
If I had more time these are some of the other places I would have visited.
Oslo is a charming city to visit in Norway . If your main goal is to see Fjords and you don’t have a lot of time, you can skip Oslo and just focus fully on Bergen . I only had a chance to be in Oslo and I am definitely going back to Bergen in the summer to see the Fjords !
