Our first stop in Norway was in Oslo. Oslo is a beautiful, clean city. While there, we were able to balance the outdoors with art and history. We visited the Vigeland park which housed more than 200 sculptures showing humans in a variety of capacities. We also made a trip to the National Museum to view The Scream. Our other major destination was the Viking Ship museum. This was probably our favorite stop. The museum is well set up, and a video presentation is impressive and informative. Besides visiting these places, we mostly enjoyed the city by foot.
The biggest shock we experienced in Oslo was the prices. It was nearly impossible to eat out and have a meal for less than $100 for two people. Beer was about $15 for a standard lager. Although we thought Oslo was very beautiful, we were not expecting such high costs.
