Enjoyed our visit to the Oslo City Hall! I was pleasantly surprised to see all the beautiful art! It is also the place where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded. Check out my photos

As city halls go, this one is modern compared to the rest of Oslo but that aside, go inside and take a look around the great hall. The murals are beautiful. At the front of the building you can look out over the harbour. Easy...More
