The Medieval Park

This weekend I wanted to go downtown and photograph. The plan was that my friend Ellen was going to come with me, but she had to cancle, so I ended up alone. Despite being alone, I had a good time with the camera and my lenses. I often use my trusted 50 mm lens, but yesterday I mostly used my zoom lens (18-125mm).

I visited the Medieval Park. It was something that was planned, but somehwere I ended up after some walking. It is a very, very long time since I’ve been there. It might be  nearly ten years ago! The park isn’t big and is located in a part of Oslo I don’t visit very often, so that’s two reasons for it being so long ago. The Medieval Park is the location of the Øya Festival, which is held every August. I’ve been to that festival once.

The park is a ten minutes walk from the Central Station. In the Medieval Park you will find the ruins of St. Clement’s Church, St. Mary’s Church and the former Royal Estate front open in the day. A water surface is located in the west of the Park. In this area, development is not allowed due to ruins and plenty of cultural remains in the underground.

Here are some of the photos from yesterday:
