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
