An English Church in Copenhagen

Next to Copenhagen Citadel you can see a strange sight; a typical English Church. It's called St. Alban's Church and it's the only Anglican Church in Denmark. The funds for it came mainly through the work of the Danish Princess Alexandra who married the later King Edward VII of the United Kingdom. The cornerstone was laid in 1885 by Princess Alexandra in the presence of half the European Royalty. It was consecrated in 1887 again with a great Royal presence. A nice little church in a nice place.
