Oslo: I came, I saw, I'm satisfied

First impression when I got out of the train station, I wasn't very impressed with Oslo. I know it is a city and what to expect of it, but it does not have the Scandinavian charm like it neighbors or even her sister, Bergen.

However, there are certain parts of the city that are quite nice (mainly around the city's main shopping stretch and the waterfront).

But the thing I wanted to see was the new opera house. It is quite an impressive piece of architecture. Therefore, I am quite satisfied with the day so far.

I'll be sticking around for one more day. Further exploration needs to be done before I conclude my impression of Oslo. Till later, the next post will be a summary of Scandinavia before I head off to Berlin.
