In this special May 17th podcast episode we have with us the Director of Eidsvoll 1814, Bård Frydenlund. We touched up on why Eidsvoll Manor House is one of Norway’s most important national symbols, why we ended up celebrating our National Day on May 17th, what is written in the Constitution of Norway and when Norway became a democracy.
As it was the place where the Norwegian Constitution was drawn up and signed in 1814, Eidsvollsbygningen (Eidsvoll Manor House) is one of Norway’s most important national symbols. It is a house full of exciting history. For Norwegians it is one of the most important national symbols, inextricably tied to the constitution, independence and the dramatic events of 1814.
