Trip to Oslo!

Why we wanted to visit Oslo? 
Well, the king and queen have their palace there.  As you can see in the picture.


    And of course the well known Vigeland's sculpture park,

    and Tusenfryd

    TusenFryd is a classical amusement park, with roller coasters, carousels, games and entertainment. Amongst our rides are the great roller coasters like the wooden «ThunderCoaster» (950 meters long with a top speed of 100 km/h and which gives you 12 times airtime), «SpeedMonster» (0–90 km/h in 2,2 sec, 6.000 hp) and the water coaster «SuperSplash». There is a designated children area for our smallest guest, Barnas Fryd, our pool area, BadeFryd and in 2010 we introduced as the first park in Europe «Nightmare». This is a 5D attraction with 3D cinema, sound, light and other effects plus interactivity, giving our guest the opportunity to be involved in the ride, as a 5th dimension.

    But first, we tried to capture the beauty of the nature along the way.

    Why we did not put our feet on the water? Oh no! The water was too cold although it was summer.

    But the scenery wa breathtaking!

    Our first visit to the Royal palace. My husband in the middle:) But we did not see the king and queen:(

     Me in front of the parliament building:) I have not seen any politician either!

    At least we saw the statue of Queen Maud at the back! 

    Princess Maud of Wales (Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria; 26 November 1869 – 20 November 1938) was Queen of Norway as spouse of King Haakon VII. She was a member of the British Royal Family as the youngest daughter of Edward VII and Alexandra of Denmark and granddaughter of Queen Victoria and also of Christian IX of Denmark. She was the younger sister of George V. Queen Maud was the first queen consort of Norway since 1380 who was not also queen consort of Denmark or Sweden.

    And this is the Vigeland's sculpture park. 

    The Vigeland Park

    The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. The park is open to visitors all year round.

    The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architechtural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949.

    Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.
