I wasn't able to spend much time here, but the time I spent here was well worth my tine to find St. Olav's Catholic Church. It was very well taken care of and I was happy to spend some time in here to pray before...More

St. Olav is outside of the usual tourist routes in Oslo. It is a nice church that is worth visiting. Extend the visit to the cemetery in the back.

Visited here recently and was blown away by this Church. A quiet, free to enter, Church. So calm inside. Very busy on the day I visited but still a lovely calm atmosphere inside. Very big inside and welcoming too. An amazing pulpit too.

Beautiful Roman Catholic Church. Very spiritual and a wonderful place for meditation and worship. The stained glass is gorgeous. There is a beautiful reliquary containing the relics of St Olav.

Catholic church with masses in a variety of languages on Sunday. The exterior is kind of Lutheran. The interior reminds me of late 1800s - early 1900s Midwestern US Catholic churches. It seems to have a very active congregation. It is across the street Decorative...More

The Church is very beautiful. The outside is probably more amazing than the inside. This seems more like a local parish Church rather than a Cathedral, esp in the usual European sense. Originally I found this Church by wandering by on a weekday afternoon. The...More

Saturday evening mass at St. Olav's is at 6 p.m. On Saturday evenings. The number 37 bus (toward Nadalen) stops right beyond the church and you walk down the hill to it. These buses run quite often. We catch the bus to the... More
