I wasn't able to spend much time here, but the time I spent here was well worth my tine to find St. Olav's Catholic Church. It was very well taken care of and I was happy to spend some time in here to pray before...More

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.

Having just toured Asia, I was used to doing mass in foreign tongues. So when given the opportunity to go to the early mass in Polish as opposed to waiting for a mass in English, I chose to soak up some eastern European culture instead....More

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

Very modest and rather small for a cathedral but it has a certain charm to it. Very simple both from the outside and the inside. Nice to see catholic church that is not all covered in gold and sculptures. It is not open for visitors...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

Saturday evening mass at St. Olav's is at 6 p.m. On Saturday evenings. The number 37 bus (toward Nadalen) stops right beyond the church and you walk down the hill to it. These buses run quite often. We catch the bus to the... More
