Norway Introduction

Booking of trains in Norway

Norway is located in western Scandinavia in northern Europe and is also known as the "Northern Road." Extending north to the northernmost tip of Europe, South and Denmark face the sea across the sea. The territory of Norway is long and narrow from north to south, the coastline is abnormally tortuous, and there are many coastal islands, up to 150,000, so it is known as the country of 10,000 islands. Norway is also one of the countries with the most mountain ranges in Europe. Plateaus, mountains and glaciers account for about 75% of the country's land area. Norway's internal transportation system is quite convenient, and train and ferry trains are closely connected to each other. "NSB Togruter" can be obtained free of charge at the train station, which includes train schedules and transfer information to and from buses. The departure time of boats and buses may change depending on the season or even holidays (for example, there are particularly few departures on Saturdays and Sundays), so the babies who travel to reach the destination, may wish to turn to the tourist service of the train station for the latest schedule Oh.

Oslo | Bergen | Tromso

Oslo

Oslo is the capital of Norway. It is located at the end of the Oslofjord, facing the sea and backing the mountains. It has the scenery of a coastal city and the magnificence of relying on alpine dense forests. The buildings on both sides of the streets of Oslo have a strong medieval color, and together with the unique Nordic scenery here, it is no wonder that the happiness index of residents often ranks in the top cities in the world! 

National Gallery of Norway | Nasjonalmuseet

The National Gallery is the most abundant museum in Norway. The most famous of these are the "Scream" by the famous Norwegian painter Edvard Munch, and paintings by artists such as Van Gogh and Dahl. Babies who like to visit museums and art galleries will be very happy inside. (Note: The art gallery will be renovated on January 13, 2019. The new art museum will not open until 2021! Pay attention to the friends who arranged the trip!)

Royal Palace Oslo | Det Kongelige Slott

The Royal Palace of Oslo was built in the 19th century and is where the King and Queen of Norway lived. Like Buckingham Palace in London, the Oslo Palace is only open to tourists in the summer. To visit the interior of the palace, you must participate in an explanation group for about 1 hour. Tickets for the tour can be purchased at Narvesen or 7-11 (both convenience stores). If there are still tickets left before the tour, you can buy them at the entrance of the palace. Every day at 13:30, you can watch the Changing of the Guards ceremony. For those who are not interested in the interior of the palace, visiting the beautiful back garden is also a good choice.

 Norwegian Travel Security Tips

The weather in Norway changes a lot, please keep warm, especially when camping in the mountains at night, the temperature difference between day and night is large. In winter, most areas of Norway will be covered by snow and ice, and the sun is very short. We must take measures to keep heat and slip. Western Norway has abundant rain, strong winds, and variable weather. Because of the changing wind direction, the rainwater is non-directional, especially in mountainous areas, and it will still get wet when you umbrella. Please pay attention to prepare windproof and waterproof jackets and pants. If you go hiking, it is best to bring a pair of hard soles, waterproof and non-slip hiking shoes (Goretex), and don't forget to bring sunglasses to prevent UV damage to the eyes.
