ABC Wednesday - N is for Nobel Peace Center
N is for Nobel Peace Center.
The Nobel Peace Center in Oslo is in what was originally the old railway station Vestbanen. The station closed in 1989 and the Peace Center opened in 2005. As you can tell it was a rainy day when I was there.
A photograph of the museum from the other direction can be found on Oslo Daily Photo.
My second photo is a closeup of the windows underneath which are engraved the three great buzzwords:
The Peace Prize is awarded annually and the presentation ceremony is held at the Oslo City Hall with the Norwegian king in attendance. Once again there is a better picture of this building, taken from the other side to mine, on Oslo Daily Photo.
