Awe at the wonders of Vigeland Park
In the center of Oslo sits the world’s largest sculpture park created by a single artist, the Vigeland Park. The mastermind behind it all was Gustav Vigeland, one of Norway’s finest artists. The park is not only one of the Norwegian capital’s largest public open spaces but also an eye-catching homage to the artist himself. More than 200 granite and bronze statues await your visit, in addition to welcoming open spaces. A visit here is a must-do when in Oslo, it is open all day, all year, and is eagerly awaiting your visit.
Enjoy stunning sculpturesCompleted between 1939 and 1949, the Vigeland Park is a stunning and majestic work of art in itself. Here, you can see the famous bronze statue ”Angry Boy” (Sinnataggen in Norwegian) as well as the ”Wheel of Life”. These striking statues are spread over an 850-meter axis from the entrance to the park’s stunning centerpiece the ”Monolith”. Human nudity, in all shapes, sizes and situations, is the main theme for the sculptures, which explore the human form and human life. The park has more than one million visitors each year, making it the most popular tourist destination in Oslo. The park is also a loved recreational area for the capital’s citizens, whom love to bask in the sun in this beautiful area.
Witness the legacy of a unique artistGustav Vigeland, the artist himself, passed away before the park was completed and was never able to experience the success of his legacy. His vision was to create a public park for the people of Oslo, and beyond, to enjoy. If you want to learn more about the artist you can make your way to the Vigeland Museum, situated just outside the park itself.
