Built in the 1600s, the Kastellet in Copenhagen is one of the best preserved star fortresses in Northern Europe.  Over the years it helped Denmark deal with invaders from England and Germany, but today it is primarily a pubic park and historic site.  A few military activities take place at the Kastellet, but all I saw was a uniformed guard who told me to get off the grass while taking this photograph.

  1. There is something extremely unsettling about an armed guard coming toward you and asking you to step off the grass…even as nice as he was about it.
