Architect Emil Victor Langlet sent in his plans in a contest for the building of a Parliament building in Oslo after a vacation to Italy. While his trip made him behind with his submission, the superior design that he put together was enough for him to win the competition and the Parliament Building was built in 1850. Today, the building contains 169 members of the Storting, the Norwegian Parliament, and is the main location for all Norwegian legislative work and debate. Visitors can experience a regular one hour long guided tour of the entire complex in both Norwegian and English.
