Vor Frue Kirke information
Founded in 1191 and rebuilt three times after devastating fires, Copenhagen's current cathedral dates from 1829, its neoclassical looks the work of CF Hansen. Sporting high-vaulted ceilings and columns, it's home to sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's statues of Christ and the apostles, completed in 1839 and considered his most acclaimed works. The sculptor's depiction of Christ, with comforting open arms, remains the most popular worldwide model for statues of Jesus. In May 2004, the cathedral hosted the wedding of Crown Prince Frederik to Australian Mary Donaldson.
