The must-see attraction in Oslo is Vigelandsparken.


I don't think I have ever seen anything like it. It's a whole park of bronze and stone sculptures of naked people at various ages and poses.

Gustav Vigeland sculpted all 212 statues. It took him over 20 years.

People fighting, playing, crying, loving, running. It was all very touching.

The centerpiece: A huge column carved from a single piece of stone.

The detail and the scale of it was mind-boggling.
