Easter in Norway in 2019

In contrast to the Orthodox Easter in Russia, the Norwegian Lutheran Easter Første påskedag is a holiday of national significance which does not have one, but three full days off.

And weekends are always Thursday, Friday and Monday, which makes Easter weekend in a small vacation.

Taking into account the fact that only one day off falls on the New Year, and Christmas, although it gives two free days, it can fall in the middle of the week, Easter is the most “precise” holiday in the Norwegian calendar.

Many have time to fly a couple of days to the south to truly meet the spring. The most popular and profitable flights from Oslo are listed here.

Thus, Easter is a long holiday, it is even considered that Norway is the longest in the world to celebrate Easter .. The last day for schools and some enterprises is the Friday before Palm Sunday, that is, a week before Easter holidays.
