Kronborg slot is one of the most magnificent Danish castles, that used to be a fortress, a Royal residence for many Danish kings and the military quarters, until it was turned into a museum. The elegant royal apartments, the ceremonial halls, the rooms, reserved for important guests, as well as the king`s wing and the queen`s apartments are all decorated with ancient fire-places, tapestries, antique furniture and a fascinating picture gallery. In the basement you can see a statue of Holger Danske, who, as legend tells, has been sleeping for centuries.
