The home of an Empress

Along the coast of Øresund is quite a few very large and very nice villas. For most people, owning these properties will remain a dream as the prices along the coast is sky-high. Many of them has been taken over by businesses or has been divided into smaller apartments, as it's often the only way to sell the villas. This one is called Hvidøre and is the former home of Dowager Empress Maria Fedorovna of Russia, who was the daughter of Danish King Christian IX after she was exiled by the Russian revolution in 1917. The villa is now owned by the Novo Group and is used as an internal conference and training venue.
