From the Grand to the Humble

Yesterdays church was a grand one, but todays is a more typical Danish parish church. It's called Grøndal Church and resembles an ordinary village church even though it's placed in Copenhagen right next to one of the busiest roads in the city. It was built in 1928 for collected money from the local community when the area was still dominated by farms. Originally it was meant to be a great church but the collected funds were not enough for the grand Cathedral envisioned by the locals so they had to make do with this one. In the years to follow the city grew around it so it now seems a bit out of place. It's a nice church though.
