Oslo’s Peacock Fountain

Posted on

If you stroll through Oslo and pass by the National Theatre, you will surely notice the Peacock Fountain. It is shaped in a way that it forms a semicircle, that is supposed to resemble the fanned tail of a male peacock. It was put in this spot in 1989 as a gift from Norwegian art collector Christian RIngnes and has been designed by architects Lund and Slaatto

Fun fact: In summer the water basin of the fountain is sometimes filled with foam! This especially fun for children playing in the fountain but also adults passing by may find their inner child and play with the foam for a while.
