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.

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.
