Oslo doesn’t have many interesting buildings to offer. The royal palace is very boring and bland, even the Renzo Piano designed museum in the Harbor is just so, so, but the city hall is magnificent. The outside at least. It’s in our opinion the best...More

Don’t judge a book by its cover. The inside is amazing and the free guided tour was outstanding. It really tells the story of this great country.
