Hamlet's castle, Denmark
Hamlet's castle, Denmark

Located at the narrowest point of the Øresund, overlooking the sound between Denmark and Sweden; Kronborg is hugely symbolic to the Danish people and played a key role in the history of northern Europe in the 16th-18th centuries. World-renowned as Elsinore, the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet, it is a beautifully preserved fortress which is both imposing and striking when passing through the Sound.
