Karl Johans gate is Oslo's main shopping street. Similar to Oxford Street in London, but Karl Johans gate is a shorter walk. While walking down this street, you will pass by the Oslo Cathedral and Parliament. At the end of the street, you will see the Royal Palace. I went to Oslo during the Easter public holidays and Karl Johans gate was crowded. Here you will find Scandinavian brands like Vero Moda, KappAhl, Lindex, Weekday and Cubus. If you are in Oslo this is a must visit. There is also a souvenir shop at the start of the street for you to buy a few gifts to take home.
