Above is Frederiks Kirke (Fredericks Church), an Evangelical Lutheran cathedral started in the mid 1700’s and completed 150 years later, after standing as a half finished ruin for most of that time due to cash shortages. It is visible from the center of the octagonal courtyard of Amalienborg, the winter home of the Danish royal family. If you look closely in the picture below, you can see the guards posted at the corners of the courtyard. I was lucky enough to wander through the courtyard one day at the changing of the guard, which was really cool to see.
