Completed in 2007, the Oslo Opera House
facade of white marble and granite rises
from the water imitating a glacier.

Sod roofing is traditional
in Scandinavia, for its
superior insulation.  People
actually water and mow
their roofs here!

Homenkollen Ski Jump dominates the
landscape, visible for miles.  Suspended in
midair!  The current world record is
a jump of 136 meters.
Over 900 tunnels dot the landscape –
improving traffic through the ice and snow.
