St. Olav is outside of the usual tourist routes in Oslo. It is a nice church that is worth visiting. Extend the visit to the cemetery in the back.

Visited here recently and was blown away by this Church. A quiet, free to enter, Church. So calm inside. Very busy on the day I visited but still a lovely calm atmosphere inside. Very big inside and welcoming too. An amazing pulpit too.

A nice church, didn't get a chance to go inside. We were walking around exploring all the different areas of Oslo and stumbled across this. Nice to see

Beautiful Roman Catholic Church. Very spiritual and a wonderful place for meditation and worship. The stained glass is gorgeous. There is a beautiful reliquary containing the relics of St Olav.

Catholic church with masses in a variety of languages on Sunday. The exterior is kind of Lutheran. The interior reminds me of late 1800s - early 1900s Midwestern US Catholic churches. It seems to have a very active congregation. It is across the street Decorative...More

The Church is very beautiful. The outside is probably more amazing than the inside. This seems more like a local parish Church rather than a Cathedral, esp in the usual European sense. Originally I found this Church by wandering by on a weekday afternoon. The...More
