"Capital of Norway :)" Oslo by Durfun

Oslo Travel Guide: 2,957 reviews and 7,202 photos

Wooden stave churches

You can see these here and there, dotted around the country, but very few originals remain.

Head for Bygdøy...

The folk museum gives you a flavour for what the Vikings got up to, how they lived, made things, etc.

Definitely eye-opening and educational.

Vigeland Park

Boy, this place is awesome. I just loved the various sculptures depicting scenes from real life, mostly about interaction between humans.

Some of them were so innocent, I just could not stop taking photos.

The monolith, 46 feet high, is carved out of a single block of granite. It consists of 121 intertwined figures. A fine piece of work, for sure :)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting.. go to the sea for a swim :)
  • Cons:The complex station ;)
  • In a nutshell:Vigeland... wow... so sweet, so innocent :)

      Too bad Norway is abbreviated NO. I think it should be abbreviated YES.

      Sure, I find it funny too. But 'No' might be appropriate, as when I suggest to people to visit, they say "No, too expensive." ;-)

    Thank you for reading my reviews on Vienna museums.
    As for the dessert I find the Sacher Torte a bit dry; I prefer Zanoni & Zanoni ice cream.
    It is nice to read your reviews on Oslo; used to go there for busyness but visited Vigeland.

    Mmm, Oslo has some different sights to see. Vigelandsparken, the Stave church, and the Viking ship Museum looks pretty cool!
