View of the center

This photo is taken on the top of Carl Berner, which is situated quite close to the center of Oslo. Far off to the right you can see the top of the two towers of the City Hall. You also see the inner parts of the Oslo fjord and parts of the tiny islands I wrote about in an earlier post.

It must be a pleasant city near the sea. It`s some kind strange, that I have visited almost every country of Europa but never Norway´, what a shame!
I have very good friend, Finnish heritage, who lives near Oslo, perhaps I will visit some day, now I look at your pictures from there.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

A very pretty photograph of a city I would never have the chance to see. I wonder, sometimes, what kind of animals live in different parts of the world. I suppose they are similar or the same as those we have here in Ohio where I live. Your photography is always worth seeing.

I am anxious for you to see the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak that came to Brookville, Ohio yesterday. It is the first one I have seen since we moved here 44 years ago.

Wow, it's not as built up as I'd imagined it to be! It's much smaller than I thought.

How many people live in Oslo approximately?

Hey guys, thanks for commenting on today's photo!

Leena: Hopefully you'll be able to visit Oslo one day, in that case I hope you'll enjoy it. :)

Abraham: I'll see if I can find animals to take photos of, but mostly I've seen wild animals outside of the borders of Oslo. I have seen elks/moose (?) in Oslo though, several times. And where I lived earlier we had a fox visiting... and a badger. Squirrels, of course... and lots of birds. No polar bears. ;)

Erin: Oslo isn't very large, I guess. According to Wikipedia (link is on top of this page) there are 548,617 inhabitants in Oslo. If you count the surrounding areas there are 825,105. Not a huge city compared to many other countries, but it's the biggest city in Norway. :)

I love when the city is near the water, just a perfect setting :)

Thanks for your comment, Kris! And yes, I agree. I love living near water. :)
