  • The territory of the palace is the palace itself and a large enough park around it. And if the palace always has a lot of tourists, the park feels a little secluded. People read books, sitting millet under a tree on the grass, making morning jogs, having lunch on a bench by the lake. It is also interesting to watch the clock, which not only stand still and look at one point, and constantly move, twist in the hands of a gun and meet a divorce. The palace itself is located on a hill, and if you become exactly the center, you can see all the long pedestrian street and mountains that hide in the morning fog, complementing the atmosphere of Oslo.
