Situated in the middle of central Oslo it's easily found. Karl Johans Gata runs right beside. there's a little park in front, which is used by many as a thoroughfare or simply just to sit and people watch.

Each in this city is a good place to take a walk. It's clean, convenient and safe. Few people and relaxing atmosphere, how I wish we could stay much longer on this fine city.

An interesting afternoon with acting out simultation of the voting processs in the Parliament decision making with dealing and wheeling during the decicion-makings. The sightseeing of the building was done before we arrived.

This is a magnificent building set in Karl Johans Gate, a beautiful construction easy access for walking as it set in a pedestrianised zone, not open to visitors during the week days.

The most fantastic about this building is that it seems to be unprotected. It is located in the center of the city, a beautiful old building. It is the history of democracy in Norway.

Particular and interesting Parliament like no other in Europe! Cool architecture and perfect position are already reasons enough why not to miss.

We took lots of pictures and walked by many times, but the build was getting some refurbishing so we never got inside.

Free admission, not far from the railway station. Built at the end of the 19th century, great architecture. Good stop if your in the area.
