Church of Our Saviour

Mahalakshmi Venkatesh
Another amusing thing about Copenhagen was the bridge traffic. I was on my way to the Church of Our Saviour when every now and then, a passing ship would call for the cyclists and pedestrians to stop as bridges parted to give way to massive ships. You will even see the sailors singing merry songs sometimes :D Reminded me of the Danish guy I met in Austria! My short stay in Copenhagen ended with a visit to the Danish parliament when the sun briefly came out to say hi! After the happy co-incidence :P, I left for the airport to fly back to London. But as my flight took off, I promised myself that I would come back and visit all the other Nordic countries soon. Would you too?! :)

Day 5 - The baroque church, Church of Our Saviour or Vor Frelsers Kirke in Danish, is definitely worth the visit. Paying an entrance fee of 45DKK (~ 9AUD) offers extensive views over central Copenhagen led by its most famous helix spire with an external winding staircase that reaches about 90m to the top. The design came from the inspiration of Sant'lvo alla Sapienza's spiral lantern where its external winding staircase also turns four times in anticlockwise manner. I tried to overcome my acrophobia but as as I was half way through to reaching the external winding staircase, it just got to me with the stairs becoming narrower as I go higher. It's a shame that I decided to turn back and not pushing my way through up to the top for the magnificent view of central Copenhagen :(
