Roskilde Cathedral (Domkirke) in Denmark

Saturday, April 27, 2019



Hey!

Aside from castles, another thing so much interesting about Europe was their cathedrals. I didn't expect to be that overwhelmed since I am used to seeing churches or cathedrals in my homeland. The centuries of the architecture of various styles was just another experience to see here. Today, I will be showing you this special cathedral in Roskilde where royalties place of burial.

This cathedral was listed as one of UNESCO World Heritage properties. The architecture was inspired by French Gothic style that was reconstructed throughout the times. Here is where some of the remains of kings and queens buried.


The admission was 60DKK/person with a book guide. You can pretty spend a good 2 hours here getting around the cathedral, looking around some paraphernalia of the cathedral in a small museum inside, and visit the place of burial of the late kings and queens of Denmark.


From the baptismal font, organ, altar, chapels and many more some were from since the mid-1100s. The location where this cathedral stand was also where 1000 years ago the first church was built in Roskilde. The vibe overall in the cathedral was as expected grandeur because of the influenced here of the royalties. 


 Every grave mostly has its own mini chapels and special place in the cathedral. It was all designed uniquely. Some of the king and queens buried here were King Christian I, 3,4,5,6,7, Frederik 3,4,5,6,7 and Margrete I.


Here is my VLOG on the inside of Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark.
