Photographer's Note

The 200 year old Frederikskirke or Marble Church is more impressive than Copenhagen Cathedral. Originally designed to rival St. Peter's in Rome, the church took over 100 years to build (due to budget restrictions) and features one of the largest copper domes in the world. Around the exterior are 16 statues of a range of religious leaders from Moses to Luther, and below them are sculptures of eminent Danish ministers and bishops. If you’re feeling fit, you can climb the 273 steps to the outdoor balcony and gaze at the beautiful view.
