What people are saying:

Frederiks Kirke (Frederiks Kirke) is famous for its Rococo architecture. It is called the Marble Church and is an evangelical Lutheran church in Copenhagen, Denmark. The church is the focal point of the Frederiksstaden district; it is located west of Amalienborg Palace. The Friedrichshafen Church has the largest church dome in Scandinavia, with a span of 31 meters. The dome is supported by 12 stone pillars. The cornerstone was set by King Frederick V on October 31, 1749. After Eigtved's death in 1754, the church remained mutilated for 150 years without completion. The church finally opened to the public on August 19, 1894. The gold lettering on the front porch is engraved with the following words: HERRENS ORD BLIVER EVINDELIG (The way of the Lord is forever).

    A place to give yourself a break and think about eternity.

    Reminded me of Rome's Pantheon. It is unexpectedly full of light inside and smaller than on the photos.

The Frederik's Church is a very large dome church in Denmark. Because of the extensive use of marble from Denmark and Norway, the locals affectionately call it the “marble church”. The church is located opposite the Palace Square in Copenhagen and across the road from the Amerinburg Palace. The huge dome of the house is painted with portraits of 12 apostles of Jesus. The interior decoration and painting of the church are solemn and majestic. Visitors can stroll through it, quietly admire and enjoy the immortality, solemnity and sacredness of religion.
