This is the old university in the center of Oslo, not far from the royal palace. This is where the juridical faculty is situated. The other faculties are in the new university, situated at Blinderen. I think the old building is very beautiful.
The university was built in 1852. Behind the pillars you'll find the ceremonial hall, decorated with huge paintings by Edvard Munch. It's often used for concerts and other solemn ceremonies.
The parliament used the university as their meeting place before the parliament building was finished in 1866.
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
