  • Very nice place to visit. On sunny day it looks stunning.
  • A beautiful palace, especially on a sunny day. Surrounded by a nice park where you can walk, run, sit, play and relax.
  • One day i have a dream and a experience to travelling in Oslo City, Kingdom of Norway. I like to see Norwegian face-to-face one day; to have a small chat sharing of Culture and of Education between Indonesian and Norwegian both of the Main Point of Discussion. Thank You. #myapologize to anybody, if there was something wrong in my pronounce in English. Keep going to be Fit and Better done. 😁
  • Nice view of the city center on a sunny day and it is very touristic.
  • Lovely evening walk to The Royal Palace, not too posh like other european royal palaces. Not opened for public. Guards at the gate.
