Vigeland Park, Norway


For a while Gregg has been saying I need to get more photos on here from our trip last year.  He's right of course.  I shared quite a lot at the time but it's been almost a year since we were in Norway, and I still have a lot more photos to share.  So, that being said, today we will go back to Vigelund Park in Oslo.


At this site here you will read that Vigelund Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist.  It is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions, is a gorgeous place to walk around, and the sculptures go on forever.  















There is also a Vigeland Museum just over the road, where you can see original castings done of these sculptures and learn about the artist himself. That is also worth a visit.  Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943) is the artist and is a very important man in Norwegian art history.  I'll be sharing photos of the museum another day.  In the meantime I hope you'll enjoy the sights and scenes that we saw around the park.
