St. Hanshaugen is one of Oslo's largest parks, located just north of the city centre. This popular recreational area is great for walks, and from the top of the hill you have a nice view of Oslo. St. Hanshaugen was originally a bare rock hill. In the 1840s the name St. Hanshaugen ("midsummer hill") came into use, as the hill was a popular place for midsummer celebrations. In 1936, an open-air café was built at Festplassen - the square on top of the hill - which is still a popular summer café today.

There are 13 carvings; 10 portraying animals, the last 3 portraying a human, something resempling a trap, and a bird-like figure. Rock carvings have been found at two other places in Oslo; at the University at Blindern (in and next to the chemistry building), and in Niels Juels gate (these can be seen in the Historical Museum).

Bjørvika Barcode is a masterplan designed by MVRDV of Rotterdam and the Norwegian firms DARK Architects and A-lab. It is realized as a row of multi-purpose high rises designed by different architect firms. The buildings are all long and narrow with some space in between them, thus jointly resembling a barcode. Besides the overall shape the buildings are very different, with many enjoyable architectonic details and quirks. The construction of Barcode is part of the larger development of the Bjørvika area. The tall buildings are situated close to the Oslo fjord, and have radically redefined the skyline of a city that was distinctively low-rise. The project has caused an unprecedented stir among both architects and the citizens of Oslo, and the designs and heights of the Barcode buildings remain hot topics of discussion.
