Oslo's main street, Karl Johans gate, leads from the Royal Palace to the central train station. Along the way are Oslo University, the National Theatre, the Parliament and Oslo Cathedral, as well as plenty of shops and restaurants.
A statue of Henrik Ibsen stands in front of the National Theatre. Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) is Norway's most famous playwright; his works include "Peer Gynt," "A Doll's House" and "Ghost."
Vigeland Sculpture Park is one of Oslo's most visited attractions and contains more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and cast iron. The park represents the life work of sculptor Gustav Vigeland.
