My first trip to Oslo was in 2010. I went there with my friend.
We went for a weekend, 29.01-01.02.2010. Arrival on Friday morning, departure on Monday morning.
We went by Wizz!Air (cheap) plane from Warsaw to Oslo Torp airport. Each of us had a carry-on and registered luggage.
The whole trip Warsaw to Oslo was around 4 hours. We arrived at Oslo Torp (about 110 km from Oslo) after 2 hours of flight. Then the next 2 hours we spent on a train to Oslo city centre. If you want to know more about the transport from Oslo Torp to Oslo, please read the post Airport Trains.
On the way back to Poland we used a bus to go back to Oslo Torp airport.
In Oslo, we were riding public transport for free using Oslo Pass.
We bought 72-hour Oslo Pass, which gave us free entrance to museums, free rides with public transport and a ride on a mini cruise on the inner Oslo Fjord. It wasn’t cheap, but we really saved money using this pass.
We were astonished to see shops closed on Sunday. Even grocery stores. Even stores close to the central station. A guidebook we took in the tourist information had info on stores opened on Sunday, and it’s good to use that. We were also surprised with the lack of English-language description on food products. It looks like everybody speaks English tho. 😀
Oslo 2010 Trip
Sorry for the quality, I took the photos with my mobile’s camera.
The photos above don’t cover the whole trip. I wrote earlier about Folk museum in Oslo (to be specific, about an old church).
I love this city. If I’d have to move somewhere in Europe, it’d be Oslo for sure. I’m going to Oslo next time I have a chance.
Did you go to Oslo? What do you think of it? What kind of adventures you had there?
