The Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway and the Association of Serbian-Norwegian Friendship hosted a celebration of the Norwegian Constitution Day, its biggest national holiday, held at the Kalemegdan Fortress.
On this occasion, Ambassador H.E. Arne Sannes Bjørnstad said “We celebrate the Day of the Norwegian Constitution, which was adopted on May 17, 1814. It has given rights to citizens, and at the time it was revolutionary. We celebrate this day in our communities all over the world, and here together with the Serbs, we celebrate the friendship between Norway and Serbia”.
The Norwegian Constitution, signed on May 17, 1814, has a special place in Norwegian history, not only because it enhanced Norway’s independence, but also because it laid a strong foundation for the democratic development of that country.
