  • Drobak is a small village south of Oslo that I wanted to visit leaving that prevails in the girl who c is in me, in fact the desire to see him was related to the fact that from here we send the famous letters to Santa ... and a beautiful lovely store trinkets and Christmas items! The Christmas spirit sweeps--and the beauty of its simplicity is striking to people like me who loves Christmas. The small harbour offers a wonderful show at sunset. Those colors are etched in my mind. The village is very small and there is nothing to see, beyond the small attraction Santa Claus post office and shop. If you are not die-hard Christmas traditions, maybe not worth going here ... otherwise don't miss your chance!
