The Vigeland Park reminds me of Central Park in New York City. The grounds are huge and very well kept. This is the place that you might have heard of - there are over 200 statues of people in action created by artist Gustav Vigeland. In the center of the park there is a large totem sculpture combining many different sculptures into one. It is free to visit and must not be missed when visiting Oslo!

One of a kind
Vigelandsparken, also known as Frognerparken, is not only a must-see in Oslo, but one of the best parks I have been to thus far. Well, it really is more like an outdoor sculpture museum! Go figure!
Besides the amazing sculptures, I really like the layout of the park, especially the far-stretching lawns and pathways bordered by maple trees.
Oh, and did I mention that there is no entrance fee?
A wonderful gray February day in Oslo where we cross country skied through Vigeland Park. The statues were covered with a light snow/ice combination and made for some spectacular images in the low light of a midwinter's day.
