Winters in Oslo are definitely dark and cold

Sunset in Oslo makes the town look like it’s on fire. This feels like the beginning of a Norwegian folktale. Alternate title: “Town on fire in Norway looks like a beautiful sunset” 

In general, there is no sunset in Norway. The earth is rotating at a tilted axis relative to the sun, and during the summer months, the North Pole is angled towards our star. That’s why, for several weeks, the sun never sets above the Arctic Circle. Svalbard is the place in Norway where the midnight sun occurs for the longest period.
