What I See From Mountain To Sea

Scandinavia is made up of Danmark,  Norway, and Sweden. Finland is usually also included in Scandinavia but not always because the Finnish people are not related as closely to the Scandinavian people listed above that speak closely related languages. The Finnish people speak an unrelated language as they are of a separate ethic group from the Danish, Swedish, and Norwegians. Also, Iceland is often considered part of Scandinavia. I think it may be due to the fact that Iceland had been colonized by Norway and it was part of Norway when it was part of the Kalmar Union. Norway, Sweden, and Danmark joined together as the Kalmar Union in 1387. Margaret I of Danmark was the Queen. A reason I think Finland is part of Scandinavia is because it was part of Sweden during the middle ages. Also, it is in the same geographical location as the other 3 Scandinavian nations, just to the east of Sweden. Iceland is a bit further away though.🤔. I guess it could be part of Scandinavia since it was once part of Norway. But Greenland is part of Danmark but it is NOT part of Scandinavia. Greenland is very far away though, closer to North America. 


On the grounds of Rosenborg castle, Copenhagen. This is the Hercules Pavilion and the ice cream shop is on the other side. .

A view of Malmö Castle in Sweden.

We are waiting for the group of people to be let into the castle so we can queue up at the entrance and wait for our turn. It is a self guided exploration inside the castle but only a certain amount of people are let in each time.

This is probably called the south entrance to Rosenborg Castle because we arrived here after passing through Kongens Have, after having taken a photo of the fountain. And the fountain is south or southeast of this entrance.

A view of Rosenborg Castle from a flower garden that is located on the other side of the castle from where the Kings Garden is located.

We are still waiting for that group of people to enter Rosenborg Castle. Then we will queue up to enter with the next group. The wait is not very long. Anyway, it is an enjoyable wait as long as you do not have many plans for the day. It is always best to plan for a whole morning or a whole afternoon when visiting a castle. .

This fountain can be seen at Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen. This fountain is in the Kings Garden (Kongenshavn)..

The grounds of Rosenborg Castle are extensive, including the Kings' Garden, Queens Rose Garden, and this area. There are sculptures throughout the property. This area is called the Playground and it is situated approximately half way between Kongenshavn (King's Garden) and Rosenhave (Queens Rose Garden). There is also a large and really cool stepping stone area here..

Time to queue up at the entrance of Rosenborg Castle.
