Marble Church (Frederick Church)
Denmark, Copenhagen

This church is perhaps the most magnificent church in Copenhagen. The prototype for the design of the church was the Cathedral of St. Paul in Rome. According to the architect, Norwegian marble was to become the main material for the construction, but as it was not prosaic, there was not enough money. The construction was "frozen", and only after 150 years, in 1894, a certain private person found funds to complete the construction. True, the size of the church went one third less than expected, and more limestone than marble went to its construction.
