You might think we are on a floating ice shelf, but this is the Opera House in Oslo. It is a prestigious expensive building opened in 2008 with 1100 theater halls! It must look like a glacier and a big part of the building is under sea level.
The public is allowed to walk on the roof which is covered with marble and goes rather straight up. A weird experience to walk over a theater! But you have a great view from top.
In front of the building is a floating ice shelf.
Then we visited the "Vigelandparc" named after Gustav Vigeland with 212 sculptures which represents the human being in all his shapes.
The center is formed by a Monolite of 17 metres with 121 human figures who keep themselves together and support each other.
The Monolite is surrounded by 36 groups of granite sculptures which express the cyclus of life and relations.
It was quite impressive what one man can produce. The sculptures are all rather real so for the puritan Blogspot I choose the decent ones to show you. Norwegian people are rather physical and have no problem with nude which is a normal attitude I think.
As you probably had noticed is was a rainy day and we had left the parc just in time to have the downpour safely sitting in the coach.
We had a coffee break on top of a hill where I saw the first typical Norwegian houses with grassed roofs. It keeps the houses warm in winter and cool in summer.
