Vigeland Sculpture Park Oslo

Vigeland Sculpture Park Oslo

Oslo is a fascinating city. If visited with the warm sun and the deep blue sky of late sprigs it could be so nice to be compared with the top of the Mediterranean touristic cities. It is not so wide, enough to be visited by bicycle but at the same time it is full of wonderful places to see. Cycling through the typical moderate and orderly traffic from downtown to north shortly is possible to find the Frognerparken better known as Vigeland Sculpture Park, from the name of the famous Norwegian sculptor.

This famous attraction took places from a deal between the Oslo’s authorities and the sculptor Gustav Vigeland. The Vigelandsparken was chosen as the space to devote to the works of the sculptor following the decision of the municipality to demolish the building where the sculptor’s studio was located. Since 1924, for about twenty years until his death, Vigeland produced a series of masterpieces that came to adorn the open spaces of the park and his house, now a museum.
