The organisers of the Red Bull cliff diving series must have thought so too. The building known locally as Operaen hosted the latest round of the contest at the weekend. Hot men in tiny trunks braved the Scandinavian 'summer' to leap 28m from the roof into the water below. Over 27,000 people filled the waterside to watch the event.
In one of those sad coincidences of timing, the building's architect Henning Larsen passed away on the same day at the age of 87.
