Cheating: Lund Cathedral

Lund is a town in Sweden, so technically the stunning cathedral does not belong on this blog. However, parts of Sweden, Lund included, were part of the Kingdom of Denmark in the twelfth century when the cathedral was built, so I'm okay with the cheating just this once.  

The giant, Finn, trying to break a pillar in the crypt. 

The astronomical clock, Horologium Mirabile Lundese, from 1389 actually still works. 


The ruined castle, Lilleborg, from the twelfth century.
