  • Royal palace is one of the main attractions in the city of Oslo. I visited this by getting into city sightseeing bus which took me to other places too. This is a nice ancient building constructed in aesthetically very attractive. From this place you many get almost whole and beautiful view of the Karl Johan gate leading towards Norwegian Parliament. A nice place overall
  • Very pretty Palace which you can see from way down the street. Huge entry way. Talked to one of the Royal guards and seem really polite and happy to answer a couple of questions. Their shift change is pretty cool too. The park surrounding the Palace is great to walk by as well
