The National Library in Oslo


Photo by Tord Baklund

The magnificent building in the picture below is one of the two The National Libraries of Norway. 

Nasjonalbiblioteket, as it’s called in Norwegian, was established in 1989, to preserve the past for the future. The building seen on the picture is the National Library located in Oslo, there is actually another one in Norwegian town Mo i Rana as well. Even though the establishment had been created in 1989, it wasn’t until 2005 that Norway got it’s very first national library. The building in which you’ll find the national library today had been renovated and was ready to be opened to the public. As it happens, it opened exactly 100 years after Norway dissolved its union with Sweden, 15th of August. Isn’t it a truly gorgeous building? If you want to visit it, it’s located at Henrik Ibsens gate 110.
