We'll start up with buying a ticket for public transport, take a few stops to the west where the posh areas are to visit one of Norways biggest tourist attractions - a park with over 200 sculpures made by the same man! The sculptures are often dark and melancolic with some intresting stories behind them. From there we'll travel by tram down to the picturesque sceenery of the harbour. I show you where the local ferries depart out the islands of the Oslo fjord, I'll point out the free entrance museum of Norways war museum. We'll stroll around the old fourtress dating back to the middle ages protecting the city from unwanted visitors and hear the history behind it. From here we'll move on to the Opera house and explore the finest piece of archetecture that the town has to offer. We'll move on to the eastern neighbourhoods where we'll find a more artsy crowd and the Sunday market that is full of crafted goods and art surrounded by booming street art. I'll also point out the cheap and cosy resturants, the least expensive beer on draught, turksih fast food, food courts and grocery shops where you'll find veggies for a third of the price in the traditional supermarkets. I am happy to give you any information about the best cocktailbars, clubs, resturant and shopping or any other information you'd desire to make your stay in Oslo as good as possible. All highlights packed in one day!
