Top Places To Visit in Norway

Getting ready for another trip? How about Norway? It  is one of the  five  Scandinavian countries along with  Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.  It does not belong to the European Union countries but it is a member of the Schengen Agreement. This country is  famous for the complex and deep fjords along its west coast. Traveling Norway can be a promising experience since it is known for its amazing and varied scenery.

Here are the top places  I wish to Visit in Norway.

Oslo

Everytime I visit a certain country especially in Europe, my first target is always its capital city. That is why the first city that  I wish to visit in Norway is Oslo. It is the largest city of Norway and the third largest city of Scandinavia. This city rank among the most expensive city in the world but I am quite sure that  we can find there budget hotels during your stay.

There are a lot of things to see and experience in Oslo. You might want to go for a walk in one of its park. A visit to its Royal Palace, the Oslo Cathedral, the University of Oslo and other interesting buildings and architecture here are recommended. This is a good news to all museum-lovers, visiting the museums in Oslo is free. Not only that, Oslo has a lot of interesting museums to visit. For sure, you will have a great time in this city.

Various discount airlines fly to Oslo Airport, Gardermoen. Depending on your departure city, you can always find cheap airfares especially when planning booking for your trip  ahead of time.

Trondheim

Another old but beautiful city worth to visit in Norway. It is considered to be the oldest of Norway's major cities. You can experience everything in this city from music to arts, culture, nightlife, student life... all combines into making Trondheim one of the most exciting city centers of Northern Europe.

I will not surely miss the marvellous Nidaros Cathedral, the second largest church of Northern Europe when I visit this city.

Bergen

Another wonderful city to visit is Bergen. It is very famous for its beautiful nature and lovely surroundings. A walk or a hike around the area will give its visitor an unforgettable adventure trip. There are a lot of attractions in this city. Pick the ones that you like most especially if you are only visiting  for a day or two.

Kristiansand

This city is called “the jolly capital of the South”. Its nickname simply catch my attention. This city is sometimes called as Kristiansand S to distinguish Kristiansund in western Norway. S stands for South. I would love to experience the largest festival in Norway which is held in this city. It is called the Quart Festival, a multi-day music festival.


For you holidays to Norway, don't miss to read airline reviews before booking your ticket. There are a lot of affordable airlines that fly to all major aiports in Norway.

Other interesting places to see are Bodø, Drammen, Tromso, Nordkapp, Stavanger, Lofoten and Drammen.
