Helsingør (Copenhagen), Denmark
14-15 June 2016
Helsingør known in English as Elsinore, is a city in eastern Denmark, 50 km north of Copenhagen. It is known for its castle Kronborg, where William Shakespeare's play Hamlet is set. The name Helsingør is derived from the word hals meaning "neck" or "narrow strait", referring to the narrowest point of the Øresund (Øre Sound) between what is now Helsingør and Helsingborg, Sweden. The two cities gained their wealth by controlling Øresund for more than 400 years. The city is now a cozy town surrounded by the harbour, the castle and the lovely beaches.
