There is no other church like the Church of Our Lady in Kalundborg - at least in Northern Europe.

This five towered structure is not a whim of modern architects - it is one of the first brick buildings in Denmark, constructed some 800 years ago!

 

Main attractions

Denmark is truly noble European country with rich heritage. While its nature offers few spectacular sights (such as Møns Klint), country has some very interesting archaeological monuments and a huge wealth of exquisite architecture monuments. It seems that with every century Danes got better and better at architectural design.
