Welcome to Oslochurg.org! We are a site dedicated to the history and culture of Norway. We’ve decided to name our site after the famous Oslo Cathedral, formerly called Our Savior’s Church. An impressive historical landmark, this Neo-Gothic cathedral is home to many events held by the Norwegian Government as well the Norwegian Royal Family. It was erected in first half of the 12th Century by King Sigurd I of Norway. It has survived fires and has had several restorations, the most recent of which was in 1950. It continues to be an enduring emblem of Norwegian culture, which is what we hope to achieve through continuing to educate and connect with the Norwegian and international public abroad. There are many more such historical locations that are popular with visitors including an impressive array of museums, cultural institutions, and a thriving art world.
