There’s a lot of construction work going on around the opera:
This is the new Munch museum (the grey house):
Maybe some of you recognize the buildings in the background named Barcode. Some years ago a lot of people from both Norway and abroad came to photograph the Barcode skyline before the buildings in front were built.

Wonder what`s going on down there, more buildings to come?
Ant King and Heffanutt want to give you a view of Oslo’s opera house (or maybe we should say the opera house roof) and its surroundings in the following posts
After a long walk uphill, but only halfway to the top, they decided to rest.
This is how Rådhusgata in Kvadratuen looks like an early Saturday morning. A few cars drive by so Heffanutt and Ant King stay on the footpath
Another old building (built 1625 -1630), the city’s Town Hall from 1734
Heffanutt thinks old buildings tell a story on their own, he kind of liked this house, and wonders what’s behind that gate.
More from Oslo:
Some photos to feed your imagination, or at least to feed the boy`s imagination… Ant King can make up really spooky stories out of this. Heffanutt won`t listen to any stories, the word “spooky” was enough for him to get the chills.
These buildings are situated close to the fortress.

Heffanutt and Ant King are continuing their walk around Akershus Fortress area, now photographing old buildings in Kvadraturen.
Kvadraturen is the area between Akershus Fortress and Grensen, Jernbanetorget, and Egertorget. This was King Christian IV’s town from the Renaissance. Several well-preserved buildings from the 17th century can be seen in Kvadraturen.
The oldest building in Kvadraturen area (to the right) is called “Rådmanngården” – The city managers house – It was built for the city manager Lauritz Hansen in 1626. The yellow building (left) was built around 1700.
This building (built 1641) was the city’s town hall from 1641 to 1733
