Weekly Photo Challenge – Heritage!

A concerted effort to preserve our heritage is a vital link to our cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, and economic legacies – all of the things that quite literally make us who we are. – Steve Berry

A visit to Kalø Castle takes you 700 years back in time. Kalø Castle is a historic building, the ruins and remains of a once beautiful castle of a Danish King. It is located in Eastern Jutland in Denmark, about 20 km from the city of Aarhus. It has been preserved for the generations yet unborn. A historic tourist attraction in Denmark today.

What is Man without his heritage? The above is preserved from season to season. From one generation to the next.  The culture of a people is the history of a people.

 

den gamle

*Den Gamle By (The Old Town) is a historic and culture museum located in Aarhus, Denmark* The museum also has an excellent Viking exhibition, a striking history about the Danes.

 

*Typical Danish Beer. Tuborg is a Danish Brewing Company founded by Carl Frederik in 1873. Today, Tuborg is an International brand enjoyed around the world.*

 

 

kirke

*The Aarhus Cathedral (Dom Kirke) was built in the last decades of the 12th Century.  With a length of 93 metres, Aarhus Cathedral is the longest church in Denmark, and it seats approx. 1200 people*

 

The history of Denmark as a unified kingdom began in the 8th century. The history of Denmark from the Viking Age until today unfolds a rich culture and tradition of a people. These historical artefacts have been documented and preserved. They are passed down through the years, from one generation to another.

“We enjoy the best days of our lives, because of the past struggles of our ancestors…”
