Marketing still exists, but has largely been moved to Youngstorget. The building that houses the restaurant Stortorvets Gjæstgiveri is a Norwegian Cultural Heritage Site.The square became an important hub for public transportation with the introduction of the tramway.

  • In this square there are some tents and sold flowers; all outdoors. On the site is also the monument to Cristian IV. Is located in front of the Cathedral, personally I think that the city of Oslo offers a wealth of attractions to schedule the visit to this site, is a "street market"; However, taking advantage of its proximity to the Cathedral you can visit "by the way". Enjoy Oslo. LIFE... it's a trip!

  • Super Guide. Unfortunately you must be early, so that you will in any case. Or you go to a public meeting. It's worth and you feel bite as a member of Parliament.

  • Full of life and lots of flowers in the summer. You can almost disappear between all the plants where. Cold, dead and boring in the winter
