Finally a new post from our weekend trip to Oslo, Norway. On our second day, we visited Vigeland Sculpture Park. I honestly no idea why I haven’t heard about this park knowing that it is one of the most famous park in the world. If it wasn’t our friend’s idea to come here we wouldn’t have come here on our own because we don’t know how. But thankfully our dear friend who happened to be our tour guide on that trip was with us. She’s a Norwegian so of course she knows all the things to see and do in Norway as well as the local transportation. We were walking and taking trains on this trip. And it was easy for us having her as our guide. Plus Yanna likes her so much that she always wanted to sit beside her and keep asking about her until now that we are home. They made a good friends. :)
Vigeland Park is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist named Gustav Vigeland. It is one of Norway’s most popular tourist attractions. The Vigeland Park has 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. It was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children’s playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.
I was so surprised once I entered the gate. I thought it was just a normal park, but then I saw it was so big and beautiful. It was a perfect place to chill out and relax. If you have nothing to do, you could just stay there for one day or hours and enjoy the park. It’s truly a work of art. If you know about the famous angry baby, there you can see! And again, I’ve never heard about it until I was there taking photos of the angry baby. Have you visited Vigeland Park? Sorry for posting a lot of photos. Too many to choose from and I’d like to post as many as I want to document that visit. :)
