This enjoyable walk in a park like setting is unlike anything I have seen before. Beautiful but slightly unsettling sculptures that were saved from centuries of over growth. Fantastic walk cost 10 euro per person.

Wow! The closest I have come to this artistic accomplishment is Vigeland/Frogner Park in Norway--however those are statues of people, not of monsters! It was created in the 1500s, declined after years of forested growth and was then cleaned up and opened for the public....More
