White Hall


This is the red White Hall inside the Norwegian Parliament Building. This is where the 169 representatives/members meet for discussions. The Parliament Building was designed by the architect Emil Victor Langlet, and inaugurated March 5th 1866. As well as the building itself, Langlet also designed the White Hall. He was inspired by Norwegian nature, the pillars are made from Norwegian oak, and he used motifs from Norwegian Stave Churches/Medieval Wooden Churches

  1. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

  3. Wow. This is a magnificent room!

    I sure hope our government officials never see it or they might get ideas.

    Welcome to the CDP community! I'm looking forward to learning more about Oslo through your eyes.
