I believe this is the biggest church in town. Lots of history and absolutely beautiful. Located in the center of town, close to shops and restaurants. Parking close by.

This is a nice church downtown Elsinore. It is called St. Olav and is a cathedral built in 13th c. The walls are whitewashed enhancing the few ornaments within. The most original thing to see is the baptism corner - quite unique.
