Today its interior features include beautiful stained glass windows by Emanuel Vigeland and ceiling paintings by Hugo Lous Mohr.
The cathedral, formerly known as the Church of our Saviour, is also known for its clock, which was installed in the early eighteenth century, making it the country’s oldest working church clock.
