Photo by OURWAY Tours

Karl Johans Gate is really one of the must fundamental streets in central Oslo. If you walk in one direction you will end up at the Royal Palace, if you continue in the other direction you will sooner or later walk pass Stortingsbygningen, the building where the Parliament of Norway sit.

It’s on 22 Karl Johans gate that Storting building is located. The construction of the building started on August 3rd, 1860, and it opened on the 5th of March, 1866. The architect behind the building was the Swede Emil Victor Langlet. He designed the building in yellow brick, with details in light gray granite. Stortingsbygningen has no specific style, it’s a combination of several ones, for example styles from France and Italy.
