bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Rorbua Restaurant 2 years, 7 months ago
The dishes are all typical Norwegian. From exotic whale meat to salmon and trout. They have a great selection of beer and Norwegian liqour - the last time I was there with some visitors from abroad they prepared a mix of liqours and dry whale meat and it was really fun. I learned a lot of new facts about the Norwegian cuisine.
They also have meat and soups - also open at lunchtime.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about The Fram Museum 2 years, 7 months ago
Fram is really impressive. The boat itself is extremely big, and it is so fun to go onboard the ship and see the cabins, the kitchen, and their "living room" with a piano!
The exhibition outside the boat explains (very well) the history and the importance of exploring the different poles. Don't miss it!
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Nobel Peace Center 2 years, 7 months ago
I specially like one particular room on the 1st floor with portraits of all the Nobel Peace Prize winners. 1st floor is definetly more fun that ground floor, so don't spend all your time there. The shop is also very cool.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Portoferraio 2 years, 7 months ago
Napoleon's fortress on the top of the cliff above the old city centre of Portoferraio is definetly worth a visit. The harbour is very boring - rich people showing off their boats and that's pretty much it. During summer the city is very full of tourists from abroad and Italians - many Italians live on the mainland not far from Piombino and have summer houses on the islands. I strongly recommend to make bookings in advance. The ultimate souvenir is of course Acqua dell'Elba. You can buy it at the Acqua dell'Elba store at the harbour (I have to admit that the products are good). Also, check out the Italian movie "Io e Napoleone" filmed in Portoferraio, Piombino, Populonia and Suvereto.

That's a good story. :)
Regarding the exhibition, I especially liked the authentic 70's ethos in the photos and videos: the expeditors were rather laidback, one guy fishing for the next meal while another plays a small guitar and sun is shining.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Rimini 3 years, 2 months ago
You should really see Fellini's "Amarcord" (which is the word for "I remember" in the Riminese/Romagnolo dialect) before you go there. Fellini grew up in Rimini and has tried to capture the main points in the city like the market by Castel Sismondo, the Grand Hotel, Ponte Tiberio, the monuments made by the Malatesta-family, and of course the main square in front of the City Hall, and the old markets hall.
In addition to all this Rimini is full of Roman monuments and also has a big monument in memory of the very popular Franciscan-friar Antonio di Padova, that preached so well in Rimini that even the fish listened to him.
Rimini was also part Mussolini’s project of making the people “happy” by sending them on a vacation that everybody could afford, and therefore started the very important tourism industry that Rimini is known for today. He also built the new modern train system so it could be possible for everybody to get there. The beach is within walking distance from the train station. Hitler copied Mussolini’s project in Northern Germany. Mussolini was very interested in Roman history and admired and copied many of the things that the Romans did. Rimini was, after all, the city that Caesar entered after crossing the river Rubicone (it does not exist longer) and then making a serious threat against the Roman senate.
The city was bombed during World War II including the Roman Theatre. It is estimated that more than 60% of the city was destroyed.
Food: You have to eat fish in Rimini – try one of the many good fish restaurants by the beach.
So I hope everybody now understands what an interesting city Rimini is.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Oslo City Hall 3 years, 5 months ago
The artwork inside the City Hall is clearly inspired by the new working movement and can be seen in comparison to Mussolini's famous art like the one's on the buildings surround Piazza Augosto Imperatore in Rome. This is of course on a smaller scale.
It's possible to have a guided tour there, and every hour they play different songs with the big bells.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about The Royal Palace In Oslo 3 years, 5 months ago
If you don't get into the palace, which is only possible during summer time, you can at least see the changing of the guards in front of it every day at 13:30. In the summer they also have parades from the Akershus Fortress to the Royal Palace every tuesday.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Column of Marcus Aurelius 3 years, 5 months ago
The column is just a monument to tell the story of brave warriors and triumphes of the Roman men and emperor. The best way to study this column is to visit the "Museo Della Civilta' Romana" in the EUR the part of Rome created by Mussolini. They have made plaster copies of the column and divided it into many small parts so it is possible to admire all the figurines and carvings very close.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Piazza Colonna 3 years, 5 months ago
This is a very interesting place: on one side is wehere the shopping street Via del Corso explodes into chaos, and on the other side is where the Italian government has one of their main offices, it explodes in press corps, paparazzi and crazy politicians. The column is a copy like everthing else in Roma.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Tiber Island 3 years, 5 months ago
It's definetly worth it going down to the front of the island and all the way down to the river bank. Then you can actually get an impression of how much water and force there is in this river. Also makes it quite diffiucult to imagine the the ships that sailed upstream (of course then, the walls of the Tiber river wasn't there and the whole area was like the Everglades...).
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Suvereto 3 years, 5 months ago
Suvereto is a very small place and the few people that lives there are peasants and hunters. It's a great place, but nothng for young people looking to have fun since there are no places to go... That's why, if you go there, you have to be open to explore the surroundings and other cities in the area. The Suveretanis can drive two hours just to go dancing!
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Tryvannstårnet 3 years, 5 months ago
Even though the tower is closed it's and important landmark also today. I wouldn't reccomend people to go all the way up there just to see the tower, but those who go cross country skiing or alpine skiing at Tryvann will have to pass by the tower. Also in the summer for people who like to go hiking in the forest this is a great place to start. In those occations it could be cool to take a picture etc.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Delicatessen Tapas bar 3 years, 5 months ago
This place is famous for their tapas which is just excellent. They have a wide selection of tapas of course and also other dishes like sandwiches and salads. The price is quite good (for being in Norway)and the location is also great - in the heart of Grünerløkka an exciting area of Oslo.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Oslofjord 3 years, 5 months ago
Best way to visit it is by boat trips! In addition to sightseeing tours like the one that Baatservice offers (departure from Aker Brygge) it is also possible to take the local ferries from Vippetangen to the islands (app. 25.min.)
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Oslo Opera House 3 years, 5 months ago
The best way to see the Opera House is to take a guided tour and then finish it off with lunch in one of the restaurants. The restaurant called Sanguine was named one of the most children-friendly restaurants because of the menu.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Oslo Spiseforretning 3 years, 5 months ago
The restaurant is open all year (not during the holidays) and in the summer they also have tables in the backyard which is superb! The restaurant is accesssible by tram 18/19 Ljabru to St. Hallvards plass (named after the patron saint of Oslo) but it is within walking distance to the city centre.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Frognerseteren Restaurant 3 years, 5 months ago
Subway line 1 Frognerseteren goes all the way up to the restaurant which is the last stop. The subway only go under ground through the city centre, so that means that the view and surroundings just get nicer and nicer. During the economical crisis in the 1960s the Norwegian king Olav V took the subway to Frognerseteren to go skiing.
bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Norsk Folkemuseum 3 years, 5 months ago
At the moment there is an exhibition about the 1980s displayed in the Folk Museum. It literally takes you back to the events and styles of the 80s, and you get a feeling of walking into a Norwegian home and going 25 years back in time. If you like retro, nostalgia and a good laugh, this is definitely it!

This is a private museum own by the Astrup-Fearnley family. They free entrance and are open everyday exept Monday. They have a wide selection of modern art and also have contemporary exhibitions like Nate Lowman. If you like modern art this museum is worth a visit.

bjorglangesund from Norway wrote about Baatservice 3 years, 6 months ago
Many people looks for the fjord in Oslo, and even though it's right infront of them they also wish to have a boat trip so they can say that they have been on a fjord. These sightseing trips offers a little more than just taking you from A to B, they also offers information from a guide which is so much better.
