Very tempted by this, having always wanted to visit Scandinavia. Have heard scary stories of the price of eating and drinking out and the like though. Anyone got any idea how much a beer costs in Oslo on average (priorities right!)

Last time they played there (2008? 2009? can't remember Embarassed ) one very small beer after the gig was about 8-9 EUR. One very small coffee at the train station was 4 EUR. Wierded Out Beautiful country though, and the gig was good. Smile

But then one goes to Romania where one big beer in a rather posh cafe at a beautiful market square costs 1.80 EUR, so a Sisters' fan's pocket can regain its balance. Very Happy

This is really really OT, and I don't want to get into politics here, but Norway is so expensive not because it's mafia, but because it is a super welfare state, and because everyone there earns decent money. So in order to keep such a state running, taxes are high, that's why prices are high. At least that's what my Norwegian friend explained me. Anyway, I'll see for myself soon Very Happy

Spot on, Norway isn't expensive for people who actually earn their money here. In fact, we have the highest living standard in the world. The decision to not apply for EU membership came after a referendum, and had nothing to do with mafia whatsoever. I voted no myself and would do the same again.

Off topic a bit.. If it isnt expensive in Norway, why is 90% of all customers in our Swedish goverment owned liqour shops Norwegians on a Friday ? Laughing Laughing

joke aside, you must be the first Norwegian I heard that is not complaining over the prices in Norway compared to Sweden..

Enough ranting.. back on topic...

Possibly for Oslo as I live here, but what kind of tips?

The answer is obvious. Here's another question with an obvious answer: Why do thousands of Swedes come to Oslo to work here, often taking the lower paid jobs?

Unlike most Norwegians I am aware of how spoiled I am (not that anyone was comparing Norway and Sweden to begin with).

Well, I will go to Oslo with my Norwegian friend in July, and she has lived there, but she's been away a few years now. We both like not-so-mainstream music (not Burzum kind of stuff though, I'm afraid Wierded Out) and, you know, just nice places. I don't know what you Norwegians do in the evenings Very Happy

Neither do I Laughing

Oslo is very boring IMO, normally I only go out if there is an interesting concert, or to visit the excellent metal pub Unholy. Oh, and on Sundays there is free pinball at Tilt (which is located in the same building as the concert venue).

It's bloody expensive. I went to Oslo December '10, but prices aside, it's a fantastic place to visit! I'm really tempted by this Sisters gig there!!

Oslo is a fantastic place, indeed. And I am considering to go there again, given the lack of the Sisters visiting Reykjavik. Wink
