  'Sinnataggen' - the angry boy
by Maria_75
 
 

This is perhaps the most famous touristattraction in Oslo, and is visited by thousands of tourists all year around. Situated in Frognerparken, a beautiful park, near Majorstua.

The sculptures on the bridge were from the latest works of Vigeland, but some of the first to be installed in the park. Here you can also find the very popular Sinnataggen (angry boy).

The bridge is 100 m long and 15 m wide, and is lined with sculptures and lanterns. Under the bridge is a small playground, it is circular and has eight bronzesculptures. In the middle is a sculpture of an unborn baby.

On the river you can find plenty of ducks and swans. It is very popular, specially by children, to come here and feed the birds.
