Hello from the top of Kronborg Castle! Ever since I was little, I loved the castles and forts that were constructed during the medieval part of our human history. The moats, the bridges, the towers, everything. Finally seeing one of these European beauties was everything I had ever dreamed. I was taken aback by the majesty of the architecture and the craftsmanship required. I didn’t even care that I had to walk up 200 steps to get here, or that I can’t correctly pose for a photo. This was legitimately one of the best experiences of my life. I can’t imagine all the hardships that people had to endure in order to bring this building to life. It didn’t hurt that I also was able to see Sweden to my right and Denmark to my left. The view was absolutely spectacular, and I got to see it with two friends I made during my time abroad! Don’t think for a second that this view is all there is to the castle, though. The are preserved dungeons, bedrooms, kitchens, and even a chamber pot. All of them have been kept up so well that we can get an idea of how the royals spent their everyday life. We saw the queen’s knitting or embroidering room, the crown and throne, and the halls that I could almost see the children running around in. All in all, it was a perfect afternoon that was only topped by the perfect evening at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art that I will post about next.
