Kronborg Castle: Home to Shakespeare’s Hamlet
To be or not to be, that is the question.” ~ William Shakespeare
If you remember your high school literature, Hamlet is sure to ring a bell.
So for this week’s episode, how fitting to feature Denmark’s Kronborg Castle, which is said to be the setting of Shakespeare’s notable play.
It’s been awhile since Europe’s been on the website making this specific week in history just fitting.
Apart from April 23 being the famous playwright’s birthday where International Shakespeare Day is celebrated in England; the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, Will and Kate, welcomed their third son, the 5th heir to the throne, on the same day!
Hope you enjoy today’s royal feature as I take you inside the Unesco World Heritage site. I share the unbelievable stories of Kronborg Castle from royal banquets to canon balls over wine.
Take a tour around Scandinavia here and here.
Love, light and literature,
Location: Kronborg Castle, Denmark, Europe
