The Scream and Maddona – Edvard Muncho
As told in my last post, [Norway – Oslo(Bygdøy) – Museums], Oslo has many museums in Bygdøy island, but outside the island, there are many interesting things as the National Gallery, the Vigeland Park, Opera House and even an Ice Bar.
Ice Bar Oslo
The Ice Bar Oslo is located in the center Oslo, crossing the Karl Johans Gate.
In fact, we did not have plans to go to this bar, but as we were already there, it seemed to be a very nice place to go. This bar stays at -5º Celsius and you can have cold and hot drinks, in ice glass and plastic cup. Besides, almost everything is ice there, the tables, the seats, the bar and the glasses! Just for the hot beverages it’s used a plastic cup that you can take as a souvenir.

Overview of the place
The National Gallery – Nasjonalgalleriet
Paintings of other artists like Theodor Kittelsen can also be found there. There is a souvenir shop at the ground floor where you can buy replica of the paintings and put it on a frame. I bought two: The Scream of Munch and Noekken som hvit hest from Theodor Kittelsen. Soon they will be at my room wall!

As I couldn’t visit this park, at least I have an excuse to come back shortly to this marvelous city!
To finish our time in Oslo, we visited the Opera House.
The Opera House was recently built and it is a architecture masterpiece. You have an astonishing view from the top.
