  • Maria_75's Profile Photo

    by Maria_75 Updated Sep 6, 2007

    On May 17th 1814, the Norwegian Constitution was signed in Eidsvoll. The building that housed the first parliament is preserved in all it´s grander.

    Among majestic old trees, you may walk through a piece of Norwegian history, and even stroll by Eidsvoll Church, and the residence where the Norwegian national poet, Henrik Wergeland, grew up.

    The national day is a celebration of the Constitution. Eidsvoll Manor at Eidsvoll is the place where the Norwegian Constitution was worked out and signed on the 17th of May 1814.

    The Eidsvoll Manor is therefor very imortant for the Norwegian history, and it is one of the most famous and wellknown buildings in Norway; exciting due of course to the historical events in 1814 but also because its significant architecture.
