Roskilde is a small town located in eastern Denmark, 21 mi (35 km) west of Copenhagen but very different in feel.

Roskilde is an ancient city dating from the Viking age most famous for its cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The cathedral was built in the 12th century and the town grew in religious and economic stature. It was one of the most important in Denmark for the next few centuries until the reformation ended the importance of the church.

Other important sites include the Viking Museum. The historic center is small and easy to navigate.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
