National holiday parade, May 17th, Royal Palace, Oslo
The Royal Palace, on a rise, the Bellevue, at one end of Oslo’s main thoroughfare, Karl Johans gate, is one of the country’s most important buildings, and a concrete symbol of the course of Norwegian history since 1814.
Built in the first half of the 19th century as the Norwegian residence of Norwegian and Swedish king Charles III (Carl Johan, Charles XIV of Sweden), it is used as the official residence of the present Norwegian Monarch.
The Royal Palace is open to the public during the summer, and visitors must follow guided tours, which last about one hour and begin every 20 minutes, most in Norwegian, but tours in English are also given every day.
