"Stortinget" Stortinget - Goverment Building Tip by arantha

Stortinget - Goverment Building, Oslo: 20 reviews and 34 photos

  Stortinget, Norway, 2004
by arantha

Stortinget ('the Great Council') is norwegian parliament. The Storting Building which we can see on the picture was completed in 1866 and was designed by the architect Victor Langlet. It's a very nice building from my point of view :) Not only from the outside but from the inside as well, and it has very nice guards working there ;-)

You can visit it with the English speaking guide and get to know about Norwegian history (and see all historical documents, like e.g. constitution).
