Valentine's Day - Oslo style

As the weather can't decide to be cold and wintery or nice and springy - you can at least be warm in your heart this coming weekend and next week. It's Valentine's Day on the 14th of February and there is something for everyone going on.

There are many sources on what's happening in Oslo and the region, but one of Oslopolitan's favorites is Mer av Oslo! This channel is produced by cool locals who want to "help you live like a local" and lets you know about great things happening in the region.
Unfortunately, they don't post in English (yet) so Oslopolitan will from time to time translate some of these tips, so you can be more like a local in Oslo.

Follow Mer av Oslo on social media (Instagram/Facebook/TikTok) or check out their website if you want to practice reading Norwegian ☺
