Tower of Domkirke, Karl Johans Gate, Oslo, Norway

Like Iceland and Sweden, Norway's brand of Christianity is Lutheran and this is the tower of Oslo's Lutheran cathedral. Though there is space about the place, I found that the tower offered the best chance for a photo on the evening when this scene was captured. The church may be a stone's throw from Karl Johans Gate but it is not directly situated on Oslo's principal street either. Next morning, I had designs on a quick sortie to take in the Royal Palace but getting from my hotel as far as the Domkirke appeared to take up all the time that I had so the enterprise had to be left for another time. Oslo needs more than an evening for its exploration so I may return sometime.
