Long ago I visited this park and I bought a book with black and white photos, which I now used for this slide.

Wow, you have posted my favourite place. Så flink du er til å skrive Norsk. Har du bodd i Norge?

Min onkel kan nederlandsk.

I remember visiting this park in Oslo 30 years ago..it is an amazing place. All your V posts are great, and some interesting information too, especially about the Viking invasion of GB.

Heard a lot about this - didn't have time to visit it when I was in Oslo - found other interesting statuery there so don't regret missing it.

Miss yves thanks for the visit. Yes Vigeland was rather popular in Norway.

Thanks Dina, yes all the statues are nudes. My grandson of 15 didn't approve of it and thought it indecent.

Hi Tash thanks for the visit.

Ackworth Born, no you cannot see everything.There's so much to see and hear. Too much actually.
