Oslo Cathedral791 Votes Currently Open
Oslo’s third cathedral was built in 1697 after the first two burned down in fires. Both the Norwegian Royal Family and the Government use it for public events now. The architecture is Baroque. The highlights of the church are:
- The large ceiling murals painted by Hugo Lous Mohr in the 20th century.
- Stained glass windows by Emanuel Vigeland.
- Pulpit and altar piece.
- Organ front with acanthus carvings.
Though modest compared to the other great cathedrals around Europe, the church feels old and serene.
