Oslo (1)

I can’t say that it’s the perfect introduction to Oslo because it’s cold and very damp with snow on the ground in the countryside. My first impressions ? Easy to walk, not much traffic, the late nineteenth-century heart of the city still reasonably intact, low-rise and green. I saw some of the grand new building on the docks, but am hoping for better weather tomorrow. Meanwhile, I was able to admire the cathedral, with its bronze doors of 1938:-

And its adjacent neo-Romanesque Basarhallen, designed by Christian Heinrich Grosch in the 1850s as butcher shops:-

Nice art nouveau detailing on the Norges Bank building just behind the Architecture Museum (completed 1906):-
