Oslo was a special detour we made while visiting the Scandinavian countries in 2015. After an overnight trip by boat from Copenhagen to Oslo, we had little more than 24 hours to absorb as much of this city as possible.
We were so lucky to have had perfect weather for our short visit, so my memories are of a sun-soaked city with people out in droves enjoying the warmth.
It is a very old port city with a fortress to be explored …
… the unforgettable Frogner Park with over 200 amazing statutes and sculptures (one day I’m going to figure out the difference between the two) …
… and lots of interesting architecture.
… including City Hall, also called the Brown Cheese Building. I think it was meant to be derogatory, but any building with such a wonderful clock on it deserves some respect.
Visiting this wonderful old city was definitely worth the detour.
