The pearl of the Danish architecture - Roskilde cathedral

Just in 30 km from Copenhagen in a small town of Roskilde there is one of the unique buildings of the Danish kingdom – St. Lucius cathedral. It is the main cathedral of Denmark and the royal chapel, which is the resting place for 39 members of the Danish royal family. There is something symbolic in the fact that the main cathedral of the country was founded here, though, perhaps, it was done on purpose, as a symbol of the denial of paganism and transition to Christianity.

What to do with money in Copenhagen?

In Denmark you will have to face the fact that despite being a member of the EU zone since 1979, it still has its local currency, Danish krone, not euro. This is related to two factors: according to the constitution of 1953, only the royal house is entitled to print the Danish money. Therefore, transiting to euro they would have to change the constitution. The second factor is that the Danes convincingly voted against the introduction of euro as the main currency at the referendum in 2000. Therefore, it can be easily proclaimed that the Danish people prefer their own currency, Danish krones, but euros are accepted in most tourist places. If you do not want to worry about exchange rate you can use your credit card, which will be accepted everywhere.
