We went to Helsingor expressly to visit Kronborg castle.
Immortalized by Shakespeare, as the setting for Hamlet, the castle has its charm, first from the location jutting into the sea, and also from its structure and details.
The ensemble is strong and harmonious, and maybe because of the visibility given by the romance, looks familiar.
The visit to the castle is easy and free, except for its highlights, which, not demanding much time, deserve the ticket’s price.
The chapel is the top point of the visit to the castle.
With its Renaissance decoration, it is a festival of colors, in a style looking heavy and too dense to my Latin eyes, but all of it is harmonious and respectful.
There are different tickets, according to what you wish to see, but this chapel should be your top priority.
Copenhagen was a surprise to me: a joyful city, living with pleasure its integration with water.
Travelling along the canals or walking along the streets, was really a great pleasure.
Bornholm justified a second trip, in a short but very well planned visit that allowed me to have a look of a different area of the city.
A few tips were added to Copenhagen page
In my first visit to Bornholm I got the idea that it is a place where locals go in search of nature and beach.
My idea is also that the waters must be so cold that... brrrrr.
I've been there, in my first visit, in a sunny (cold) day of Fall, and repeated it a couple of years later, this time flying, despite the curious way to take the ferry: Leave Copenhagen by a tunnel, that becomes a bridge entering Sweden from where the ferry leaves to Bornholm island. Complex but functional!
This second and deeper visit confirmed the first impressions.
