A piece of history at Fru Burums

At the Oslo westend you find Fru Burums. It is located in a relatively new building, but the place has an old world charm. The owner has collected old pieces of furniture to the pub. As I asked about the gothic piece in the bar counter I expected the answer to be - "that is made out of paper-maché". The answer was however: "This is a genuine medieval piece....."

There were several interesting pieces of the interior that came from an old church even the benches where you sit. In fact the other part of this interior used to be a pulpit. There was also this very old archway close to the entry originating from the United Kingdom. So if you would take a beer in an ecclesiastical environment you now know where to go.
