Fortress, Palace, and Boat Ride in Oslo, Norway
Not only did we blog about our visit to Oslo we also Vlogged about it so you can check out the vlog below before reading the rest of the blog.
Inside the fortress there were lots of different places to see and lookout points.
We tried to get as many pictures as possible.
The fortress is huge and right next to the harbour area and our cruise ship.
We found the pedestrian shopping area in the city centre. The big main street is called Karl Johans Gate.
We bought a magnet of Norway and then we happened upon an old church.
We saw the Grand Oslo Hotel.
Oslo has ferries that go to different islands and other areas around Oslo.
Down at the end of the waterfront is a modern art museum called the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art.
Our view from the ship was pretty cool with all the lights on the fortress.
We said goodnight to Oslo. The next morning we woke up relatively early in order to get one of the Fjord cruise boats that cruise around the Olsofjord.
We headed out on our mini cruise. A cruise within a cruise.
Snøhetta architecture firm.
The islands around Oslo have these cool colourful houses on them.

|Our pirate ship Helena.|
The museum had lots of photo exhibits.
After the Noble Prize Center we made our way back to the ship before the ship left without us. We said goodbye to Oslo, Norway. Oslo was very nice and hopefully we will get a chance to come back and find some vegan restaurants as there is actually a lot of restaurants with vegan stuff in Oslo as evidenced by the http://www.vegannorway.com/ website.
