Akershus Fortress, Oslo, Norway
A HISTORY LESSON
Akershus Fortress is located in the city center by the Oslo Fjord and it is a great place to discover the capital’s history and enjoy beautiful views. It is a medieval castle that was built in 1290 to protect Oslo, for a certain period of time it was used as a prison as well.There is a lot to see around and on the territory of the fortress - there is a lovely pond, an overwhelming armory display, and the water accompanied by the adjoining landscape is in itself a very nice experience.

It must be mentioned though that you have to be prepared for a whole lot of climbing and walking, so don't forget to put on your most comfortable shoes! Apart from that you can take a walking audio tour to learn about the history of the fortress and of Norway, and hear some ghost stories as well. You can also watch the sunset, the ships, from the top wall of the fortress.We recommend you visit this historical place with astonishing views.
