Photo and description
One of the most original churches in the world is Grundtvig Church. This is a Lutheran temple, which is located in the Bispebjerg district & nbsp; Copenhagen. The Grundtvig church is named after the Danish theologian, famous theologian and clergyman Nikolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig.
Construction of the church began in 1921 by the famous Danish architect and engineer Peder Wilhelm Jensen-Klint. The building's final construction work was completed in 1940 by Jensen-Klint's son Kaare Klint. The church was built in an expressionist style, where features of Gothic, Baroque, modern architectural styles, as well as the architecture of Danish village churches intertwine. The western facade of the temple is especially original, which looks like a church organ.
The structure was built of special hand-made yellow bricks. Clint decorated the nave of the church with stepped gables with double tops. The length of the inner hall of the temple is 76 meters in length, the height of the nave is 22 meters. The altar in the church was built by Kaare Klint according to sketches by Jensen-Klint, from the same yellow brick as the church. Initially, there were 1,863 chairs for parishioners in the temple, but since the gallery is closed today, no more than 1,300 visitors can be accommodated in the temple. On the north side of the nave of the cathedral is a small church organ, installed here in 1940. The large church organ was delivered in 1956. Its structure contains 11-meter pipes, which are the longest organ pipes in Scandinavia.
Today the church is open to the public. Organ concerts are regularly held here.
