What’s going on in Oslo these days?


So what’s going on in Oslo nowadays during COVID? The truth: not much. Due to the Covid19 crisis a lot of shops and most restaurants and bars are closed. Simply put, people seem to spend a fair share of their time indoor.

Strolling around in Oslo City Centre you’d be astonished how empty it feels, but at the same time find people out enjoying themselves and perhaps seeking a mental break from the media coverage of the virus.

I intended to find out what was going on at some of the major sights in town. Follow me as I walk from the west to the east, starting by the Royal Palace and ending up at the Opera House.

Thanks for watching!
