Let’s put it out there, straight up, Oslo is expensive. Very expensive!
There! Now we’ve done the obvious, we can look a the rest of Oslo with awe! It’s a busy city but it never felt crowded, the transport is excellent and is so easy to use, it’s almost confusing. There must be a catch to easy, well priced city centre travel! Ermm, no! Everyone in the city is well mannered and very friendly, polite, charming and in times of need, super helpful (speaking from experience – why resort to google for local knowledge).
The city has a colourful mix of museums, from hands on, fun places of learning to the more sobering, humble museums of culture. The sun rises and sun sets go on for ever, almost all day! The long shadows cast a mesmerising warm spell over the city, whilst the bitter winds will chase you through the street corners.
