The Queen's Residence, Fredensborg Palace, Hillerod, is only one of the many places to visit in Denmark. Romantic Denmark proper, is made up of a long peninsula called Jylland, or Jutland, two large islands, Fyn, or Funen, and Sjalland, or Zealand, and some 483 smaller islands which dot the entrance to the great Baltic Sea.
History such as the Viking period, the reign of Valdemar I and Valdemar II, the reign of Valdemar IV and his daughter, Margrethe I make searching their historical records worthwhile. More recent history WWII saw King Christian X ask his people not to resist the German invasion, although the country had declared neutrality like several other European countries, it became occupied for several years. Now it enjoys its freedom once again and definitely a beautiful place to visit.
