Medieval Battle

The roof of Forsvarsmuseet at Akershus Festning, a brick building from 1860. And a medieval battle in front. I wonder which team owns that tank.

The Pig on the Roof

This building in Oslo has a pig painted on the roof! And it is visible when zooming in on a maps website (here pictured through Google Maps).

The building is called Chateau Neuf. Some cool information from Wikipedia:
  • Opened in 1973
  • Houses The Norwegian Students' Society (existing since 1813), whose personified patron and coat of arms symbol is 'His majesty The Golden Pig.'
