Soro Klosterkirke reviews
The monestary dates back to around 1160 and no less than three Danish kings are buried here. The interior in particular is very beautiful. The church is being restored at present but is still open. more »

Cool and Beautiful place. Feels like a cross between a Roman and Irish Cathedral with a Danish twist.

Really nice church, worth a visit
