Norway has some of the most amazing sights in the world. When traveling to Norway make sure you choose the right season, because Norway is known for having one of the longest snow seasons in Europe. Some good cities to visit in Norway are:
Oslo is the capital of Norway. The Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park is a popular tourist destination, and is also known as Frognerparken. In the summer, many people have picnics, barbeque, or just walk, in the park. It has a collection of 212 sculptures. One of the famous statues is “The Monolith”, a stone carving with a height of 14 meters. If you enjoy skiing, then you must visit the Holmenkollen Ski Jump. It has a sky jump tower, sky jump museum, café and other attractions.
Alta is a large city frequented by tourists. Alta has rock carvings protected by UNESCO. This rock carving tells the story of human life in prehistoric times.

Roros was appointed by UNESCO as a World Heritage City. The settlements there have some unique characteristics. If you visit, you should go to Vingelen village, a traditional mountain farm village to learn about farming and ranching.
