Awesome Oslo


This picture story was submitted by Helen Mason from Caledon, Ontario.


Recently I had the good fortune to visit Oslo, the capital city of Norway. While I was only there for three days I was able to see quite a lot. My favourite was Vigeland Sculpture Park. 

Vigeland is located among gorgeous gardens in Frogner Park. It is home to over 200 sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. The sculptures are bronze, granite and wrought iron.

Even the entrance gates are beautiful. Vigeland was also responsible for the design and architectural outline of the park.

The city of Oslo abounds with superb architecture, both ancient and modern. I especially loved the doors. 

The waterfront is amazing! The National Opera House (seen at the top of this story) is located right at the harbour and is very modern and angular. Visitors are invited to walk on its roof and enjoy the views over the city and the fjord.

The Nobel Peace Centre, below left, shares stories about Alfred Nobel, the Peace Prize and the Peace Prize laureates through exhibitions, conventions and digital experiences. 

Lastly, don’t forget the iconic Norwegian sauna! There are many, like the floating one below at the waterfront!
