Hi Merve, everybody is on vacation in Norway in July, that might be the reason why it is hard to find a place. Have you checked Anker hostel? I am not sure if is cheap, but it is at least very central.

I am planing to take a plabe from Oslo in summer and i am worried a bit what i should do with my car. If you are in my aplace, where you would park it for thoae 4 weeks you are off?
Isthere anybody with a parking place and no car in Oslo? So i could leave it there maybe? You couldn't drive it i am sorry but i can bring you something from holiday.
Are you flying from OSL (Gardermoen)? If yes, I would not park in Oslo but in one of the smaller towns outside the city, like Eidsvoll. Maybe next to a train station if it is legal to leave a car there for so long. There is of course always some danger connected to leaving the car like that.
There are long term parking places fairly near the airport who specializes in customers in your situation, but that will of course cost money

There is an icebathing-club located at Frysja kunstnersenter (behind the technical museum) - they have a sauna, and are bathing in the river Aker just behind the house- but I think you need to contact them . :)
They are called "Frysja isbaderforening"

Heading to Oslo on the 22nd for the weekend, any tips on what to see and where to go?
Not necessarily that into museums etc, would rather like to explore some nice places and take in the atmosphere. :)
Thanks in advance!

Also, if you walk along the Aker river, going north, you will get to the Sunday market at Blå. Very artsy area.
My favourite place is the Vigeland Park (Frognerparken). It is outside, for free, and has 200 statues. Very beautiful.
The Opera House and Akershus fortress are also very nice, and for free.

Hey! If it will be good wather I can recommend you Vigeland Park, Aker Brygge and Akershus Castle, Karl Johans Gate which leads to the King residence. Those places are most popular places in Oslo. More quiet are Bygdoy and Ekeberg Park, from where you have the view for Oslo Centre and fjords. On the other side you have Frognersenteren, where is also nice view and Holmenkollen.
Everywhere you can go by bus, metro or tram :)
Good luck, enjoy your time in Oslo!
For cafes and authentic Oslo life, check out the Grünerløkka area. More upmarket but very nice is the area Aker Brygge/Tjuvholmen

Hi everyone :)
I'm organizing workshops and meditative meetings in English such as 'Eye Contact Meditation' or guided meditations 'Conscious of Consciousness' on enquiring into our deepest true nature.
I'd like to organize them in Oslo, do I'd like to ask you guys - do you know places that such meetings take place? Yoga clubs / workshop areas / meditation places etc.? Places that could be open for hosting and co-organizing such events.

Maybe go and ask in the town hall. They might know some places.
Also, this is a long shot, but there's this Vegan restaurant that is open on Sunday-Freday 12:00-19:00 where I think I saw an event being held once outside of those opening hours (maybe on a Saturday). You could go and ask there. You'll find it at Akersgata 74 . It's called Vega: http://www.vegafairfood.no/
I'd also be very interested if you got something going.

I have a space that is perfect for this, and already arrange some workshops there myself. Contact me if you're interested in coming to see it and have a talk about it.
