Oslo Royal Palace

Oslo, Norway

Oslo Royal Palace SentryA lone sentry guarded Norway's Royal Palace when we reached it. (The palace is located in a park on the western edge of Oslo's downtown.)

The park was quiet as we walked past the royal residence, but on another visit a few years ago, when temperatures were blistering, hundreds of Oslo residents sunbathed on the palace grounds in skimpy bathing suits--or, in a few cases, in their underwear.

The Royal Palace is open to the public from late June through mid-August, but we had other plans: We were headed toward Frogner Park and its collection of Gustav Vigeland sculpture.
