As a royal city, Copenhagen is rich in history with palaces, monuments and castles. We visited Christiansborg Palace which houses the Danish parliament, Supreme Court, the prime minister's offices, and Royal reception rooms. It once served as the Royal residence, but after a devasting fire the Royal residence was moved to Amalienborg Palace.
The Royal stables and coaches are also located at Christianborg. During our visit, we were able to see several of the palace's white horses being trained and exercised.
Rosenborg Castle is home to some of Denmark's greatest cultural treasures. The coronation throne and crown jewels are on display here, as well as the Rosenborg tapestries.
Before moving on to our visit to Norway, my next post will wrap up our stay in Copenhagen with a few photos from Copenhagen's beautiful waterfront and old canals - my favorite area of the city.
