This is one of the main tourist attractions of Oslo - The Vigeland Park, or Frognerparken as we usually call it. I love this park and the sculptures. Here you can find the Monolith, the little angry boy (Sinnataggen) and all the other fantastic work by Gustav Vigeland. If you ever visit Oslo, this really is the one place you just got to visit!
Here is some information from the Vigeland webpage:
THE VIGELAND PARK covers an area of 80 acres. The 212 sculptures are all modelled in full size by Gustav Vigeland. He also designed the architectural setting and the layout of the grounds. The sculptures are placed on an 850 metre long axis divided into 5 main units: Main Entrance, The Bridge with the children's playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and The Wheel of Life.

We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
