I arrived in the beautiful Copenhagen in December 2015. Copenhagen was once a Viking fishing settlement, and you can still find traces of the Norse explorers here. If you have seen the TV series Vikings then you know what I'm talking about! If you haven't, then I highly recommend you watch it.
Amalienborg is the home of the Danish royal family, and is located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It consists of four identical classical palace façades with rococo interiors around an octagonal courtyard in the centre of the square is a monumental equestrian statue of Amalienborg's founder, King Frederick V. Amalienborg was originally built for four noble families; however, when Christiansborg Palace burned on 26 February 1794, the royal family bought the palaces and moved in. Over the years various kings and their families have resided in the four different palaces.
