Københavns gamle bydel

Københavns gamle bydel er et besøg værd. Her ligger landets ældste universitet, der er mere end 525 år gammelt.

I 1479 indstiftedes Københavns Universitet i Vor Frue Kirke. Universitetet indeholdt de traditionelle fakulteter i teologi, jura, medicin og filosofi.

Bogsalen på universitetsbiblioteket     Indgangspartiet i biblioteket     Stor detaljerigdom

I 1861 stod universitetsbiblioteket færdigt, som man kan se det i dag i Fiolstræde 1.

For første gang afholdt man en arkitektkonkurrence i Danmark, og vinderen blev den 38 årige Johan Daniel Herholdt. Det blev hans store gennembrud, og bygningsværket er meget imponerende den dag i dag.

Jeg fik ikke lov at komme ind blandt reolerne, men det blev alligevel til et billede af bibliotekets bogsal.

Domkirken Vor Frue Kirke ligger overfor universitetet, og har dannet ramme om mange betydningsfulde begivenheder.

Kronprinseparret blev gift i kirken 14. maj 2004, og hvert år ved juletid afholdes uforglemmelige koncerter.

    1. Copenhagen is well worth exploring, Alexander. Our blogger Rabirius made ​​me aware of the diversity of the districts and the short distances.

    1. I stumbled by a coincidence over the information relating to the university. Its history was also unknown to me but not anymore. That is what makes it worthwhile to explore. Thanks Bente.

  1. Hi Hanna. That was very interesting because I know very little about Copenhagen. The university is a beautiful place, and the library looks fascinating. Your picture reminds me of the library at Trinity College in Dublin. If you’re ever in Dublin you must visit that library.
    Cheers, Alen

    1. Thanks Alen. It’s great to explore Copenhagen. The city was hit hard during the bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807 due to the civilian evacuation normal fire fighting systems were inefficient; more than a thousand buildings were burned. Among them were the most of the university and across the road the church, where Copenhagen’s cathedral Vor Frue Kirke is now.
      It was not the first time the city burned. The fire had good conditions when it came to half-timbered houses. In 1728 and 1795 large parts of Copenhagen burned, caused by a fire in an apartment building.
      I will keep your recommendation in mind due to the library in Dublin.
      All the best,
      Hanna
