The modern glass front of the Oslo Opera House makes a nice contrast to longer standing structures such as the parliament, called Stortinget. When there, pay a visit to the beautiful bright castle Oscarshall, which is open to the public during summer, however is worth visiting year around as the architecture is so nice.
