Akershus Castle

It's also a fortress, and has been successfully

protecting Oslo since sometime in the early 1300s.
 It's open to the public but is still a military area 
(don't when these cannons were last used though).

[Linking back to Ruby Tuesday and Our World Tuesday.]


  1. Great photo Alexa. Love it!!! The cannons do look ancient.
    Thank you for your sweet comment on my post and joining Blue Monday so faithfully.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  2. Those are great looking old cannons, possibly 17th or early 18th Century. I suspect the gun carriages are newer, but they make for a lovely photo.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
