A personal one


This church has a special meaning to me even though it's quite an ordinary one. It's the church were my parents got married quite some years ago and it's placed in the harbor town of Korsør on Zeeland. Korsør Church is also called St. Paul's Church and is placed in the middle of this provincial town. It's from 1871 and replaced a medieval church called St. Gertrud's Church. The tower is facing East because they wanted to have the tower with the entrance to face towards the town.

In Korsør you can also find the World's oldest cinema still in use. It's from 1908 and from a time where Danish movies were in front and the Danish actors like Asta Nielsen were superstars. Then came sound movies and Danish wasn't, and isn't, exactly a World language.
