Roskilde

Roskilde may be only 22 miles (35km) from Copenhagen, but this small city has an ancient feel all its own. It dates back more than a thousand years, and was the capital of Denmark in medieval times, as well as a hub of both Viking activity and the Danish church.

Roskilde's most significant attractions are the Roskilde Cathedral, which is the burial site for Danish monarchs, and the Viking Ship Museum, which displays ancient weapons, ships, and other artefacts from the Viking Age. The city also has the Roskilde Palace, which is a former royal residence and now contains an art museum.

The town is widely known as the home of the Roskilde Festival, one of Europe's biggest music festivals.

Roskilde is a small and pleasant town, small enough to walk around and containing a number of museums and galleries worth visiting, as well as parks, cafes, pubs and shops. The university ensures a lively atmosphere, and the city of 52,000 is anything but sleepy.
