We spent several hours at this Church which had changed during the reformation. Wonderful architecture and painting, history of all the changes.

The highlights on this visit is the art work in the statues which line the walls of the sanctuary. The church is beautiful but clearly the statues are the main reason to visit.

When lit up, this church is really beautiful. In summer though, it takes a long time for the lighting to be necessary and visible!

Most churches i don't really like that much since they look a bit depressed and dark to me. This one is quite different!

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
