Kronborg Castle - Denmark

Heidi didn't only send me the Luxembourg card, she also sent this card from Denmark. She participated in a postcrossing meeting last weekend in Copenhagen. The meeting and saturday and friday she visited the Kronborg Castle.

This card was signed by her, MissMaple (NL), Lotty (BE), Dorthe (DK),gogge1 (DK), Christa (DK), levisia (FI), IreneK (FI), Giorgis (CH), Mikis (Pl) and Gforp (DK).

Kronborg is a star fortress situated near the town of Helsingør (immortalized as Elsinore in Shakespeare's Hamlet) on the extreme northeastern tip of Zealand at the narrowest point of the Øresund, the sound between Denmark and Sweden. In this part, the sound is only 4 km wide, hence the strategic importance of maintaining a sea fortress at this location commanding one of the few outlets of the Baltic Sea. The castle has for centuries been one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe and was added to UNESCO's World Heritage Sites list on November 30, 2000. - in: wikipedia
