Second day in Oslo


Outside our hotel, waiting for the tram.
Buying tickets was an adventure in itself as you could only 
buy one ticket per credit card from the ticket machine.
The alternative was to have coins to pay with because 
the machine didn't accept paper money.
Luckily we found a ticket office!


Visiting Vigeland's Park


Gustav Vigeland lived between 1869 and 1943.
There are 212 sculptures in bronze and granite in the park,
totally 760 figures. Most of them are life-size.
The park opened in 1947.



Sinnataggen, the angry boy, is maybe the
most famous sculpture in the park.













In the afternoon when it started raining, we visited
the Oslo City Museum.
We learnt about the history of Oslo and saw some 
beautiful rooms with furniture from 1750-1790.



Fountain by the National Theatre.


Stortinget, the parliament.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
