The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet
The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet is the country's largest performing arts institution, with more than 600 employees working in about 50 professions and trades.
After its opening season in 2008, the Opera House in the old harbour area of Bjørvika soon became a landmark in Oslo.
Designed by the Norwegian architects Snøhetta, it is the first opera house in the world to let visitors walk on the roof.
Vigeland Sculpture Park
With more than one million visitors a year, Vigeland Sculpture Park is one of Norway's most visited attractions. A monumental creation, the sculpture park is the life work of the sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943).
Vigeland was also responsible for the design of the park, where more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and cast iron are exhibited.
Open all day year round, the park invites guests to linger and reflect in a serene setting.
