Denmark Beyond its Capital

There is much to Denmark beyond Copenhagen, and short excursions from the capital brought us an even greater appreciation of its charms. Whether you’re looking for fishing villages with cobbled streets lined with hollyhocks beside thatched roof cottages, or castles such as Fredriksborg (which houses the Danish National Museum) or churches such as Roskilde Cathedral, (a UNESCO World Heritage site in which the remains of 39 kings and queens are buried), Denmark can offer them all. The country absolutely deserves its reputation for beauty and enviable high standard of living.
