The building has been constructed in such a way that it looks like the structure is rising out of the waters! Like Jaws! I mean, you have to see this with your own eyes!

We’ll never be royals! But we can totally check out the Royal Palace with its 173 rooms, right? Had I been living here, I’d party in a different room every day!

4) Tryvann

Tryvann is a small lake in the north of Oslo. If you visit during the winter, you can totally use the area for cross-country skiing; but during the nice and sunshiny summer, biking or walking in the forests is preferred. I’d go for the walks, the place looks out-of-the-world! It’s another matter that Ryan Gosling should accompany me when I check out the Tryvann, it’s also another matter that I hope Ryan and I get lost in the woods…

5) Fjord

Formed by cut glaciers, Fjords can be found on the coasts of Norway, Iceland, Greenland, Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Chile. But Norway wins, because the Fjords found near this country have coral reefs growing there! So pretty! You can totally take a Fjord tour from Oslo and enjoy the sights you see.
