Vigeland Sculpture Park – Oslo, Norway

Vigeland Sculpture Park – Oslo, Norway

  One of Oslo’s most beloved tourist attraction is Vigeland Sculpture Park.     The Sculpture Park, located in Frogner Park consists more than 200 sculptures made by the same artist – Gustav Vigeland (1869–1943). The sculptures portray naked humans in a variety of poses and situations – some more unnatural than others and all of them tells a different story. Let’s just say that you can spend quite some time here without getting bored since there is a lot to look…

Travel Diary: Oslo Day 1

  I’ve spent the last couple of days exploring my neighboring capital, Oslo.   I’ve only been to Norway once before but never in Oslo so it was a brand new city for me to explore! I went to Oslo on the 9th of may with my boyfriend and my parents and we rented an apartment in the central parts of the city and decided to be climate-friendly and take the train there – which turned out to be a horrible…
