Fredensborg Palace
Denmark, Fredensborg

Fredensborg (translated from Danish “castle of the world”) is a palace on the eastern shore of Lake Esrum on the Danish island of Zealand. Fredensborg Palace was built in the heart of King Frederick IV's hunting grounds by architect J. C. Kreger in 1719. The main building was opened in 1722, and the chapel in 1726. Fredensborg Palace is currently the spring and autumn residence of the Danish monarchs. Important events for the royal family are celebrated here - weddings, anniversaries, birthdays. Fredensborg Palace Gardens, one of Denmark's largest gardens (300 acres), is made in the Baroque style. The park has many sculptures. Of particular interest is the Norwegian Valley (Danish. Nordmandsdalen), in which there are 68 sculptures of Norwegian and Faroe farmers and fishermen.
The part of the park adjacent to the palace is open only in July. The rest of the time, only members of the royal family are entitled to be in it. There are gardens where vegetables are grown for the royal court and a new greenhouse, opened in 1995. The gardens were reopened in September 2002 after serious restoration work. One of the halls of the palace is called “Russian”, since it contains objects of applied art and painting related to Russia, in particular, a portrait of Nicholas II.
