We are done (BOO HOO) with the cruise, but now we are spending some time in Oslo! I thought I would start with the big picture of the City Center of Oslo and then with future posts go with the more detailed doors. Karl Johans Gate Street is divided with a park in the center of the street. Turn around and this street takes you up the hill to the Royal Palace! Just to let you know, Oslo is ranked #1 in terms of quality of life among the large cities of Europe and #2 for the most expensive city in the world for living expenses. Let’s start looking at their impressive buildings! The first day we walked up and down this street taking it all in……..
All the buildings in this section of the city are huge! This is the National Theatre .You have to stand far away to get the entire building in the photo!
and here is the little entrance in the back…………….
This is Oslo’s home of the Hard Rock Cafe! Quite the architecture!
Many of the buildings were being updated. This is the Karl Johan Hotel. If you look behind the plastic and the trucks, there is an entrance there!
You can’t go anywhere without seeing a bear in Norway ……This one is above the door at Waynor!
Torvet #10 had an impressive entrance too…….
It’s the Shopping Mall!
I liked the pale colors of the Jack Jones Building!
And, this is the Norwegian Parliament Building………a composite of different styles….
This was one of the smallest buildings in our neighborhood and I like the style of it! And the cheery yellow color!
I hope you have enjoyed my BIG BUILDING doors of Oslo! See you next week with the more intimate doors!
