District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

The visitors' center is underground but there are signs. It's well marked inmost maps. Do you have your ticket already? Best to book online.

Only guided tours are allowed as in most significant buildings and working institutions. The guide will have access to the designated areas and acts as escort to make sure people don’t stray away.

The Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park by night?? (4 Replies)
Hi there, I wanted to ask is it worth seeing the Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park by night? Coz I'll arrive in Oslo at around 7pm and depart at 11pm, so I'll have around 3-4 hours in the city and I don't know if it's worth going there or should I just stick to the Oslo Opera House and maybe the city hall and Stortinget - The Parliament? Thanks for the tips!!

What time of the year? In September there will still be daylight until 2100 or 2030, you will have time to see the park in daylight if you put it first on your itinerary.

House of Parliament (22 Replies)
The website for the House of Parliament shows NO tour dates (self guided or guided) for the month of June. My son and I will be there for only 2 days in June, so am I to understand that it is NOT possible to visit this historical gem while we are there? Thank you in advance.
