Most of the most important institutions and attractions
in Oslo are within walking distance from each other.
You would think you are somewhere in the South of Europe
when you see all the people walking about.
Akershus slott, Akershus Castle and Fortress
The building of the castle started in 1299
and it has been expanded several times.
Several of the halls are still used today for official
receptions and dinners by the government.
