The Storting building is the seat of the Storting, Norwegian parliament. It is used since 1866 and was designed by the Swedish architect Emil Victor Langlet. The building is built in yellow brick and the basement in light gray granite.

An interesting building of yellow brick, the Parliament stands at the top of beautiful municipals gardens. Most unusual and surprising in this day and age: the building has no visible security outside!

Beautiful setting with lots of people in a park setting enjoying the downtown of this beautiful city. The design and architecture of this building is very attractive and inviting. Doesn't seem to be real large.
