  he Scandinavian region is known for its breathtaking nature, friendly people, and stylish, minimalistic architecture. And nobody does minimalism better than Norway, as one particularly stunning building shows.

  斯堪的纳维亚地区以其惊人的自然风光,友好的人民,和时尚、简约的建筑而闻名。没有人比挪威更擅长极简主义,正如一座特别令人惊叹的建筑所展示的那样。

  Norway may very well have built the most astoundingly beautiful public toilet in the world. And, I’m pretty sure, in the Solar System as well. What looks like apainstakingly crafted art installation or part of some high-tech laboratory is.

  挪威很可能建造了世界上最令人惊奇的美丽的公共厕所。我很确定,在太阳系也是如此。看起来像是精心制作的艺术装置或某个高科技实验室的一部分。

  In fact, nothing other than a restroom, designed by architects Marit Justine Haugen and Dan Zohar from Oslo. It just goes to show that you can find beauty anywhere.

  实际上,它只是一个洗手间,由来自奥斯陆的建筑师Marit Justine Haugen和Dan Zohar设计。它让人觉得美无处不在。

  It’s not just cathedrals, operas and parliaments that can look astounding; public restrooms can look magnificent as well. After all, who wants to go to a loo that looks dark and depressing?

  不仅仅是大教堂,歌剧院和议会能看起来令人震惊;公共卫生间也能让人觉得华丽。毕竟,谁想去一个看起来又暗又压抑的厕所呢?

  Everyone would rather go somewhere where the view was worth the visit. Somewhere they can relax. Somewhere they can ponder the mysteries of the universe and marvel at how incredibly deep and complex life is.

  每个人都想去一个风景值得一看的地方。他们可以放松的地方。在某个地方,他们可以思考宇宙的奥秘,惊叹生命是多么的深奥和复杂。

  Hence why the public loo is located at the Uredd rest area (Or Ureddplassen), which is surrounded by the sea and fjords. What’s more, you can even watch the northern lights from there in the winter, and see the midnight sun in the summer.

  因此,公共厕所位于Uredd休息区(或Ureddplassen),周围环绕着大海和峡湾。更重要的是,你甚至可以在冬天看到北极光,在夏天看到午夜的太阳。

  The toilet can be found on road Fv17, not far from the town of Gildeskål. The 433 km long Helgelandskysten scenic route, which the restroom is officially a part of, recently underwent a massive renovation to the tune of over 1.5 million euro. Part of that renovation included creating the toilet that looks like a work of art.

  厕所在Fv17路,离吉尔乔托尔镇不远。这条全长433公里的Helgelandskysten景区线路最近进行了大规模改造,耗资150多万欧元。而这座艺术品般的公共厕所也正是改造的其中一部分。

  “The view from the steps is unique and there is ample seating well protected from traffic noise,” explained Steinar Skaar, who is the Helgelandskysten route manager.

  Helgelandskysten线路经理Steinar Skaar解释说:““在这个休息区看风景很独特,这里有充足的座位,也隔绝了交通噪音。”

  However, the beautiful lavatory isn’t the only thing worth attention at Ureddplassen. The rest area is also home to a memorial for the 42 mariners who died in February 1943 when the Royal Norwegian Navy submarine HNoMS Uredd (‘Fearless’) hit a German mine and sank.

  然而,美丽的厕所并不是Ureddplassen唯一值得注意的地方。其余区域也是纪念在1943年2月挪威皇家海军潜艇HNoMS Uredd(“无畏号”)撞击德国潜艇并沉没,42名船员遇难的地方。

  History, nature, and minimalism, Ureddplassen sounds like worth visiting. But what do you think? Would you travel to Norway just to visit this one scenic route?

  集历史、自然和极简主义为一体,Ureddplassen听起来值得一游。但是你怎么看?你去挪威仅仅是为了参观这条风景优美的路线吗?
