21 days and 4 countries. That was our latest journey. We stopped in London to visit our nieces then off to Scandinavia.
While researching my family tree, I found out that some of my second cousins still lived in the small village in Denmark where my great grandparents came from. On the way we visited Odense. It was completely torn up. (See my previous post.)
However, this church caught my attention: Sankt Knud's Kirke. A church has been on this site since 1095 but was rebuilt in the 13th century in the Gothic style. It's dedicated to a Danish King, Knud, who was murdered during a peasant revolt in 1086. He was originally buried in Skt. Albani Kirke but, after achieving canonization, his remains were moved here.
He became a saint because he was kneeling at an altar, along with his brother, when he was slain.
Address: Klosterbakken 2, 5000 Odense C, Denmark.
