Sculpture Garden
“Vigelandsparken and is the worlds largest sculpture park made by only one artist with more than 200 astonishing sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. This is one of the most top tourist place to see, cause theres no other place like it in the whole world! To get there you take the subway westbound direction number 1, 2 or 5 to Majorstuen, about a ten minute ride, then a five minute walk to get there. I think it is possible to book a guided tour there. ”
