Art Museum
“Museum of the great painter, Emanuel Vigeland, the least known brother of Gustav Vigeland fully covered with the detailed painting. The room is very dark to preserve colours, this brings on an amazing effect- you start seeing more and more details as your eyes get used to the darkness. Quite an unusual and cool place to visit. They have short opening hours, check their schdule.”

“A tiny cafeteria by the waterfall, it is nice to have a cup of coffee and enjoy the view. Do not expect a great food or drinks, they will be just a decent, nothing special. This would be the place locals would stop by to relax and let babies sleep while moms catch-up on latest topics or something :) ”
