Drøbak, Norway



Oslo Fjord
If you are fancy a one day romantic getaway, when in Oslo, Norway then look no further than Drøbak, which is about 40 to 50 minutes bus ride from Oslo S. What else can one expect more when you are in cute and calm little town, with lot of old buildings on narrow street and which is beside the blue waters of the Oslo Fjord.
As the ferry service (recommend mode of transportation in Summer) starts only from Easter, we headed straight to the Oslo Bus Terminal, which is next to the Oslo Central Station and took the bus No 541 to  Drøbak. Had to shell out 70 NOK one way per person but thoroughly enjoyed the visit to Drøbak, though summer hasn't arrived and party hasn't started yet.

A leisurely stroll around Drobak including the visit to OSCARSBORG as a refreshing.

In the evening, visited the Peppes Pizza (Norwegian pizza chain), for have a bite of smoked salmon pizza (salmon forms the basis of many Norwegian dishes) before heading back to Oslo.
