Oslo Cathedral

Local name: Oslo Domkirke

Oslo Domkirke, or the Oslo Cathedral, is a Lutheran temple that was founded in 1697. It was built in the Baroque style. Today, you can admire stained glass windows by Emanuel Vigeland, baroque sacred furniture, including a carved pulpit and a gilded altar, as well as antique organs. Attention is also drawn to the vault decorated with paintings.

Baroque furniture with richly carved and gilded elements were created at the end of the 17th century. Their author was a Dutch artist unknown by name, they were completed by Norwegian woodcarvers under the leadership of Lars Sivertsen.

The cathedral also has a throne for the king, which was made in connection with the solemn visit of Frederick IV. Royal members marry in the cathedral, and coronations take place here. Organ music concerts are regularly organized for tourists.
