Marble Church



Frederick's Church, popularly known as The Marble Church (Danish: Marmorkirken) is located just north of Amalienborg Palace. The cornerstone of the church was laid in 1749 by Frederick V of whom an equestrian statue stands in the palace complex.

The inspiration for this church was probably St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and it has the largest church dome in Scandinanvia.
