Oslo City history and abit about the Sculpture Par

Norway is bordered to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by Russia, Finland and Sweden, to the south by the Skagerrak (which separates it from Denmark) and to the west by the North Sea.

The coastline is 2735km (1700 miles) long, its most outstanding feature being the fjords. Most of them are between 80 and 160km long (50-100 miles), and are often very deep and surrounded by towering mountains.

Much of northern Norway lies beyond the Arctic Circle and the landscape is stark. In the south the landscape consists of forests with many lakes and rivers.

One not to be missed if you are in OLSO.

One of the artistic highlights of Norway is the Sculpture Park in Oslo. The park contains 192 sculptures with more than 600 figures, all modeled in full size by Gustav Vigeland without the assistance of pupils or other artists. Vigeland also designed the architectural setting and the layout of the grounds.

The Royal Palace

The Royal Palace (no:Slottet) in Oslo was built in the first half of the 18th century as the Norwegian residence of Swedish-Norwegian king Charles III (Charles XIV of Sweden) and is used as the official residence of the present Norwegian Monarch.
