Norway has got it figured out: if you have to do some bathroom business, you might as well do it in a lavish lavatory.
The Telegraph reported on the story of the "wave-shaped toilet" at Ureddplassen in Norway, the public restroom positioned perfectly amongst the snowy mountains and with a wonderful view of the large Norwegian Sea. The area underwent a renovation costing more than $1.9 million to build this glass and concrete bathroom, making it the ideal place for a short break or to view the northern lights.
Norwegian Scenic Routes capitalized on the view of the sea and mountains by building this public loo, as well as building an amphitheater that heads down to the beach for an ideal resting and viewing location. The washroom is intended to be a desired location for travelers to stop and view the frosty mountains, the beautiful Norwegian sea and the northern lights.
"The view from the steps is unique and there is ample seating well protected from traffic noise," writes Steinar Skaar, route manager of the Helgelandskysten scenic route, on the website.
On top of these new renovations, the company has added a new marble base to the nearby "Uredd" Monument. The monument was erected in 1987 in memory of the 42 men who lost their lives when the "Uredd" submarine was sunk during World War II.
If you happen to be in Norway sometime soon, be sure to go and check out the wonderful scenery, appreciate the "Uredd" monument, and do your bathroom business in style!
