^^ I'll return with comments tomorrow morning, it's late now :cheers:
Thanks very much. it is interesting to compare cities, and not to be bragging but I think I know Copenhagen quite well.Can we hope for more photos from Oslo? Hope you enjoyed your stay, even if its not the best time of the year
The city hall placed with the most stunning view to the fiord, and when entering it felt like entering a cathedral.First time in Oslo, and spend 3 days there.
The weather was delightful, the buildings compared to the city size (and Copenhagen)higher than Nordic cities in general.
Sry for posting another one of the Barcode which fit great in, and very practical hiding the railway tracks at least from the opera angle.
The Kristiania-bohemians, great title, yes read a little bit about the wall telling.You probably know it already, as the painting shows, Grand Café was the watering hole for the "Kristiania-bohemians" in the late 19th century, and Ibsen of course whom made his daily walks from his apartment down Karl Johan, always checking his watch with the clock on the university building, before he continued to the café. He was not a friend of Hans Jäger, the leader of the bohemians, but they could share the same café at least. If the walls could talk, they would probably talk about a lot of absinthe drinking and for that time, bad moral
Thanks for the photos! Hope you had the time to see more than just the tourist attractions?
You might add Oslo in the threads title, many dont know that Oslo was named Kristiania for a period
The child is Håkon Håkonsson , later to become king in Norway, being protected and saved from enemies by Birkebeinere. it is an important part of Norways history. A film telling the story is under production. soon in the cinemasI have never been doing any discipline of winter activities a part of some skating on frozen lakes, and when visiting Holmenkollen and the excellent exhibition of it, how clear and obvious deep this is the backbone of Norway.
From the museum of Holmenkollen a painting the skiing wikings projecting a child.
