    Copenhagen City Hall

    Copenhagen's City Hall and mayoral residence is a striking building that towers over the huge Radhuspladsen square. Its Italianate look and soaring clock tower were inspired by the City Hall in Sienna, Tuscany. Its steps are guarded by some of the strangest sculptures you will see gracing a government building anywhere. Absalon, the warrior-bishop who founded Copenhagen, stands guard above the entrance, gilded but without his horse.
