  • Very beautiful and nice place. We went around the cathedral at our visit in Norway and take nice pictures. Awesome building architecture! After that we go to the nearby grocery store.
  • Looks like an UFO from the outside but is really worth the visit inside. Have seen people turning away because of the 50KR entrance fee. They have missed something. It's pure and graceful.
