Vikings, Cathedral, Sources and Authentic Environment in Roskilde

I enjoy the authenticity and atmosphere in Roskilde.
The town where Roskilde Cathedral dominates the skyline surrounded by blurred fjords and rolling fields.
It’s always a pleasure to take a walk from the cathedral down to the Viking Ship Museum and on to the fjord.

  1. Wow it’s great landscape thank you for sharing this post
    I have question where Roskilde exactly I mean in which country?

    • Thanks a lot for your lovely compliment.
      If you move the cursor over the pictures or watching them separately you will learn that Denmark is the country 🙂 🙂

    • It’s a beautiful and an interesting historic place too, Leya. Maybe you are familiar with Skjoldungelandet?
      Thanks ❤

      • Hej Leya! Det er een af Danmarks nye nationalparker. Et vidunderligt område:

        * Nationalpark Skjoldungernes Land – 170 kvadratkilometer
        Nationalpark Skjoldungernes Land ligger omkring Roskilde Fjord og Lejre.

        Det er området hvor Skjoldungerne, den danske kongeslægt fra Lejre, stammer fra. Skjoldungerne samlede Danmark og området er arnestedet for store begivenheder i Vikingetiden.

        Området er præget af Roskilde Fjord og skove. Ud over historiske slotte og bygninger er området kendt for sine hornfisk og de 10-12 par havørne, der yngler omkring fjorden.

  2. Beautiful pictures. 🙂 Hanna. When I think about Roskilde, this is the festival that comes to mind. I have thought of Roskilde as a muddy field, so wrong you can have, it is very beautiful. 🙂

    • Hi John. I’ve never been to the festival. But I recognise their ability to attract big musicians over time. Too bad it drowns in mud and waste!!
      Thank you!

    • Hi Montucky. I really do appreciate my surroundings.
      I am deeply fascinated by the history of the Viking ships. 5 Viking ships of varying size blocked a small part of the sailing route into the fjord.
      Marine archaeologists didn’t know what treasure was on the bottom of the fjord before they began to dig in the year 1962:
