Oslo's Froger Park

Frogner Park is the biggest park in Norway.  It is open to the public and is about a 10 minute tram ride from the center of Oslo.

Gustav Vigeland
Between the 1920s and 1943, Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland created 212 bronze and granite sculptures which he donated to the city.  Each of the pieces are of naked people and shows the human condition and development of life. 



Love the ski cap that someone put on the head
The Monolith of Life

Froger Park is the world's largest sculpture park done by a single artist.

Here's a Rick Steves video from YouTube about the Park.
