Storting celebrates Norway’s national day

“The 17th of May is our biggest national celebration. It’s the day everyone is invited to celebrate the values ​​embodied by the Constitution – values ​​that cut across age, gender, background and place of residence. They are the glue of Norwegian society,” said Olemic Thommessen, the President of the Storting.
