Prices in Oslo
The largest city in Norway is Oslo. The capital of the country is famous for its sights. Oslo is an expensive city second only to Stockholm. It is considered the business center of the state, therefore it has many well-equipped hotels serving guests of business conferences and exhibitions. The prices in Oslo may seem too high to tourists. But they are quite natural, because the standard of living in Norway is consistently high.
Prices for services and goods rise even higher in the fall, during the Nobel Prize ceremony. In Norway, they use their own money - Norwegian kroner. If you do not want to buy crowns in advance, take the euro with you. Rubles in Oslo can be exchanged for crowns only in large banks.
Accommodation in Oslo
The capital of Norway is more of a business center than a tourist city. Therefore, travelers on a budget have some difficulty in choosing a hotel. Oslo hotel room prices skyrocket in autumn.

Tourists on a budget can rent a room in a multi-bed budget hotel. If you want to experience local customs, rent a room or apartment in Oslo. You can rent one room in an apartment for 90 euros per day.
