Description

Vigelandsparken is one of Norway's most visited attractions with more than 1 million visitors every year.

The unique sculpture park is the life work of the sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943) with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and cast iron. 

The bronze statue of the little Angry Boy (Sinnataggen in Norwegian) is among the most famous sculptures, along with the Monolith (Monolitten) and the Wheel of Life (Livshjulet). 

Vigeland was also responsible for the design and architectural outline of the park - a monumental artistic creation with a human message that is well worth seeing.

The park is open all year at all times and is a popular recreation area.
