Travel Bites | Photo and Video Blog + Travel Tips: Oslo, Norway 2017

Norway is a country that has a firm foundation with its history but continuously moving forward towards the future.

Yes there are ‘European Buildings’ in Oslo but you will noticed that the city’s path is towards the future, towards modernisation. You will only see few renaissance or baroque style buildings and statues.

If you see the Oslo Opera House, the design is far from those in other European country’s. Same thing with the Oslo City Hall, you will not see statues of Roman gods and goddesses nor Kings and Queens; instead you’ll see carved stones and metals of the ‘people’ of Norway, whom they put there lives to be part of the rich economy of the country.

Here are some random pictures during my Oslo Travel, enjoy!


  • Like in Stockholm, Oslo is a very easy to navigate. Use your tourist map that you can get at the tourist information and you are good to go!
  • 2 to 3 Days is enough to visit this city. Visit the interesting places that you like! Ofcourse the Opera House and if you have minors with you bring them to the Toy Museum
  • Buy the Oslo Pass  for free Public Transportation and if you are a museum boy like me, then this pass is very worthy!
  • Buy the NSB ticket to travel from the Airport to the City Center or vice-versa. NSB ticket is affordable compared to other transportation and it’s also reliable. Save money!
  • FYI If you already bought your Oslo Pass, you can only exchange it in the City Center itself, they don’t do it at the airport.
  • Oslo is a small city and most of the attractions are very near to each other. There are Free Walking Tours next to the Tiger Statue, join!
  • Buy your food in the Super Market! way cheaper, make sure bring your own plastic bag.
  • Water is safe, Buy one big water bottle and refill it!
  • Like what I said in my previous blogs about Travel Bites | Photo & Video Blog + Travel Tips: Helsinki, Finland 2017 and Travel Bites | Photo and Video Blog + Travel Tips: Stockholm, Sweden 2017 this year I decided to stay in a hostel.
