A dusting of snow on bronze makes for as appealing a visual feast as a full blast of summer sun on marble at Oslo's most celebrated park. Opened in 1949, the garden is home to more than 200 works by Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. You could easily spend hours with your head cocked in admiration, taking in the precision of the works spread across 80 acres. But most visitors beeline it to The Monolith at the highest point in the park. Wrought from a single piece of granite, Vigeland's most famed work depicts 121 entwined figures reaching skyward. The sculpture park is part of the larger Frogner Park, one of Oslo's prettiest green spaces. It's particularly appealing to visit here during the extended daylight of the summer months, when families and friends gather for sunbathing, picnics, and impromptu acoustic concerts seemingly every hour of the day.—Terry Ward
