Only minutes by trik (tram) from the centre of Oslo, this unique outdoor sculpture park features more than 200 statues by the renowned Norwegian sculptor, Gustav Vigeland (1872-1943). Made of bronze, cast iron and granite, these captivating statues in the human form explore themes of life, death, relationships and humanity.
While each statue can be admired for technical composition and realistic human expression, I was most impressed by the haunting effect of walking past statue after statue through the stunning frozen parkland.
Where: Frognerparken (Frogner Park), enter via Kirkeveien, Oslo.
How: You can catch the trik from the centre of Oslo. Number 12 will take you all the way to Frogner Stadion, from where you just cross the road to enter the park.Single tickets or cards that can be topped up with credit can be purchased from a 7 Eleven store anywhere in the city. A ride will cost 27Nok and each validation (touch the machine inside the tram with your card) will let you travel as much as you want within the hour.
