Europe's first underwater restaurant

An inside view of the underwater restaurant Under in Baaly, Norway March 19, 2019. Situated on the southern tip of Norway, the restaurant looks like a large concrete tube partly submerged in the North Sea. It is called Under, which also means "wonder" in Norwegian.

It was designed by Norwegian architecture firm Snoehetta, which also created the Opera house in Oslo and the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York. REUTERS/Lefteris Karagiannopoulos

A general view of the underwater restaurant Under in Baaly, Norway March 18.

People look on during a media event in the underwater restaurant Under in Baaly, Norway March 19. The restaurant is laid out so there are minimal reflections in the glass wall, which fills the room with natural light during the day, filtered by the greenish colour of the water.
