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.

Launching The Sea Stallion from Glendalough 2017

I will never grow tired of the elegant lines, the beautiful colours, and the history behind Skuldelev 2 and The Sea Stallion from Glendalough.
This day was a bitterly cold day; April 8th 2017 when the crew launched the ship in Roskilde once again.
Spring has arrived despite the cold weather.

Munkholmen, a market place for Vikings

Munkholmen was an important market place in the Viking Age.
I always imagine a spectacular sight of Viking ships sweeping across the fjord while those on the shore eagerly are awaiting the latest news.

The ships are photos from previous years of the Sea Stallion from Glendalough at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, and a ship from the Maritime Experimental Centre, Lyndby, Kr. Hyllinge.
Munkholmen is 55 km from Copenhagen a run passing Roskilde where you can find the Viking Ship Museum.
