Vigeland Park is located within Frogner Park in Oslo, approximately 3 km away from the city center. It consists of 212 sculptures in bronze and granite by the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland, which materialize the inherences of human existence, such as work, anger, maternity, sex, fraternity, among other things, something bizarre and very photogenic. At the main entrance of the park there are four large gates, which give access to a bridge, an obelisk, a fountain and a children’s play area. At the main exit there is the sculpture of four old men raising a child, which according to Vigeland, is a symbol of eternity.
It was undoubtedly one of the places I mostly liked to visit during my short visit to Oslo, on an extended stopover when returning from Latvia to Portugal.
