If you are looking for as many dazzling impressions as possible from your visit to Copenhagen, go to the castle of Rosenborg, an exciting journey across the history of Denmark, during which, we will visit the royal treasury and will see some genuine masterpieces of the Danish past.
Rosenborg is a real castle of the Renaissance period, surrounded with a ditch and a lift bridge. This is the oldest castle in Copenhagen and at the same time it is the smallest one. In the greenery of the surrounding park it seems to be a toy, fabulous castle of the Sleeping Beauty. This impression is not accidental, because from the very beginning, in 1606, it was designed not as a full-size castle, but as a summer country residence for the king. The place where the castle is located was far from the city in the 17th century.
It was here, in the fresh air, in the picturesque nature that Danish king Christian IV had the idea to build a small house for recreation, to be surrounded with a rose garden. Those were roses that laid the basis for the whole park around the castle – the oldest royal park in Denmark, where we will have a walk too. The word «rose» gave the name to the palace – «Rosenborg» - «The Castle of Roses». King Christian IV was keen on rose growing. He ordered varieties from different countries and created new ones by himself. These roses, the roses of the Renaissance epoch are still there near the castle.
Rosenborg has been preserved in its original design of the first quarter of the 17th century, and it has not ever been on fire. Today it is a museum, during the visit we will speak about the history and culture of Denmark, learn more about the Danish kings of the Middle Ages and find out why it is Christian IV that is considered the most popular monarch in the Danish history.
