Holbæk Harbour

My next upload is from Denmark again, from the city of Holbæk to be precise. It was taken when we were waiting for the ferry to the island of Orø and shows you the harbour of Holbæk.

Holbæk is located in Region Sjælland (Region Zealand) and in the former Amt (province) Vestsjælland, about 60km west of Copenhagen.
The city has about 25.000 inhabitants (but the municipality about 68.000). Holbæk was mentioned for the first time in a letter from Bishop Absalon, the founder of Copenhagen in 1199 as the large farm Holbækgaard. Later on the city developed around Holbæk Slot (Holbæk Castle), that was built in 1236 by King Valdemar Sejr (Valdemar II the Victorious).

The light here was rather difficult to handle. The photo is a stitch of three pictures.
Hope you like it. :-)
