During a very turbulent year, Norway adopted its first constitution on May 17th 1814. That was the year Norway earned its independence from Denmark and united with Sweden. The union of the two countries lasted until 1905. Norway’s Constitution is the oldest constitution in Europe that is still being used. It has been amended a number of times, but it was never replaced by a new constitution.

The purpose of this exhibition is to offer the Romanian public a general look on the most important political events of 1814, as well as to present some of the main points of Norway’s Constitution in its current form.
