Oslo Cathedral, royal box

On our last morning in Oslo, we visited the cathedral. Seems like it had been closed when we tried to go before. It was consecrated in 1697 and restored to its original baroque interior in 1950. Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church or Norway, Diocese of Oslo, as well as the parish church for downtown.

Iím pretty certain this is the box for the royal family.

Very lovely. A view on the royal box and the great ceiling which is from wood if i'm correct. The paintings look rather modern.
