Oslo Opera House

One of the many landmarks we visited while in Oslo, was the Oslo Opera which had to be one of my favorite buildings. Situated at the head of the Oslofjord, this marble and glass building is very interesting. I liked how you are able to walk up the slope to the roof and get some lovely views. Built in 2008 it has become a big draw to both locals and tourists, it was designed by a Norwegian firm Snohetta.

The opera has won many award both in Norway and abroad, one of the many was the International Architecture Award 2010. After walking around had a coffee sitting outside on the terrace. It was a wonderful sunny and we enjoyed sitting down with the great view. Inside too is lovely, very light and airy feel to the place. I am sure going to a production here would be quite amazing.
