At Karl Johans Gate you will find all kinds of clubs, bars and cafes in between all the shops, shopping centers and hotels.
Along the main street there is always a busy life both during the daytime and at night. It is also the capital's parade street, and on May 17th the streets are filled with party-dressed children and adults.
The historical center of Oslo is called Kvadraturen. It is the area between Akershus Fortress and Karl Johans Gate, Jernbanetorget and Egertorget and it got its name because of the rectangular street pattern. Here you will find some of Oslo's oldest buildings and many fine art galleries.
