Oslo, Norway

Crouching, playing, pondering, embracing, even throwing a tantrum, the hundreds of bronze figures in Oslo's Vigeland Park seem to capture every facet of human life. The literal high point of Gustav Vigeland's 80-acre sculpture garden, completed in the 1940's, is the Monolith, a tower made up of intertwined bodies stretching nearly 50 feet toward the sky. En route from the main gate to the Monolith, keep your eye out for the Angry Boy, one of the park's most famous denizens (and the thrower of the aforementioned tantrum). Outside of Vigeland Park, a stroll through downtown Oslo rewards art lovers with a number of attractive fountains and sculptures.
