Christiansborg Palace – Copenhagen, Denmark

Christiansborg Palace is a complex of government buildings that stand on the ruins of Copenhagen’s original 12th-century fortress. The complex includes Parliament, Supreme Court, prime minister’s office, royal reception rooms, royal library, royal stables and several museums. The current palace was built in 1928 and it is the sixth to stand on this site in over 800 years. The royal family moved out of the palace 200 years ago and since it has served as the seat of government for Denmark’s three supreme powers: the executive power, the legislative power, and the judicial power.
