These photos were taken by me (Gábor) in Oslo, when I attended a training course at the company Tandberg.

On Sunday, and late afternoon and evening during the weekdays we had chance for sightseeing, walking in the town, visiting museums and attending other amusements.
Oslo, the capital of Norway has more than half million inhabitants. The downtown is small, with shops, museums, entertainment facilities. The town is located around the blue water of Oslo Fiord, and with its large parks and forests it is a charming place, attracting more than one million tourists annually.
