Copenhagen and surroundings.

Some pictures I took during our trip to Denmark 2 years ago.
We travelled through Sjaelland, the most populated area of Denmark and we started our trip in de great capital Copenhagen.
The pictures are made with an ordinary pocket-camera and the weather was cloudy and rainy most of the time.
So the quality is not that good...

No, I think Stockholm, the capital of Sweden is the largest.

I looks quite a lot like Stockholm.

It is amazing how well structured, organized and clean Scandinavian cities are. As a Belgian the difference with cities like Brussels and Antwerp is enourmous. I dont know what I like more though, chaos or structure.

Roskilde

Quote:
Roskilde is the main city in Roskilde Municipality on the island of Zealand. It is an ancient city, dating from the Viking Age.

Roskilde train station is a major stop between Copenhagen and the region of Denmark located to its west. The city is an economic center for the region.

Roskilde has a pedestrian street with myriad shops, restaurants, and cafes running down the center of the city. Several tourist attractions draw visitors from around Denmark and the world. (Wikipedia)
40.


41.


42.
Quote:
The city's early importance is evident from the fact that the Roskilde Cathedral was the only cathedral in Zealand until the 20th century. Built in the 12th and 13th centuries, it was the first Gothic cathedral to be built of brick and its construction encouraged the spread of this style throughout northern Europe. The cathedral is the burial site for Danish monarchs and is a major tourist attraction with more than 125,000 visitors annually. Since 1995 the cathedral has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. (Wikipedia)


43.


44. Fisherman's harbour.


45.
Quote:
Another attraction in the city is the Viking Ship Museum. The centrepieces of its collection are the well-preserved remains of five Viking ships, excavated from nearby Roskilde Fjord in the late 1960s. The ships were scuttled there in the 11th century to block a navigation channel, thus protecting the city which was then the Danish capital, from seaborne assault. (Wikipedia)


46. replica's.


47.


48.


49. Vikingeskibmuseet


50.


51. One of the 5 original ships inside the museum.


52. Fishermen's houses in the old town.


53.


That's all for Denmark. Thanks for the attention and the bice comments!
