    a valuable pile of metal

    Denmark is an organized, disciplined community, and Køge is representative. My friend who lives there told me that at times it seems a little like Disneyworld, in that at times everything seems stage managed to perfection. It's true that even the trash heaps are neat and tidy!!

    Battle of Koege Bay

    This battle memorial stands at the entrance to the harbour to mark what has become Denmark's biggest naval victory. The Danes, under Niels Juel, lost 100 men fighting a battle against Sweden in June 1677, but the Swedes, bigger in numbers and cannons, lost around 3000 men! This was just one of all the battles between Denmark and Sweden in the so called Scanian Wars, when Denmark wanted revenge for Sweden getting several Danish provinces in what is today the south of Sweden, at the Treaty of Roskilde in 1658. Interestingly enough, I happened to visit Køge with my English husband and England was the country constantly by Sweden's side in these wars, so there we stood, reading it together...
