A classic statue in the heart of Oslo port. Every knows the famous president. I don’t think that is one of the most things that you must see in Oslo. There are more interesting monuments and statues that you can see.

Not in the main area's of Oslo, off the beaten track. It's nice, but not much to it. Some history to it (around WW 2). Near City Hall, so if in that area worth a quick walk over.

We came upon this statue as we wandered around the waterfront of Oslo. FDR was so honored by the Norwegians as a result of his "Look to Norway" speech given during World War II. His speech centers on Norway's courage and resistance during the war.

Franklin D. Roosevelt in Oslo? I figured it had to do with something with World War II, and it does. This was one way that Norway said thank you to the United States and F.D.R. for aid that was given to Norway during the war...More

When I took a long walk down by the sound in front of the City Hall, there is a very nice area that you can enjoy right around this area.

The reasons why there is a statue of FDR near the Oslo Harbor is simple: President Roosevelt helped Queen Marthe and her three children - today one is the king of Norway - escape Norway when the Germans invaded Norway. Also, they came and lived...More
