  • The flower market on the central square in Oslo. A cozy place. You can sit and admire the Town Hall. And the breakdown of colors make this place even more beautiful in the summer.

  • Flowery islet among busy old town. Around noisy trams, but here in the shadow of the monument lie the flower stalls. Near the Cathedral.

  • 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!

  • So much going on here. Traditional markets, check the Web for info
  • Just a plaza. Not too fancy
  • 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
