Some travelers may not be aware that the country of Denmark is actually comprised of over 400 islands, many of which are small and unpopulated. Yet of the larger ones, Bornholm is undoubtedly the one that should command travelers' attention.
The island of Bornholm is a popular vacation spot for European travelers. The reason is because the island, located in the Baltic Sea, provides all the warm weather sand and sun typical of an island oasis while also maintaining an interesting sense of culture and history.
Many travelers head to Bornholm, play in the water and lie on the beach and have a fantastic time. And indeed, this can be a great vacation. But there's more to Bornholm than the shores.
Further inland, guests will find the interesting architectural styles of the island's famous "round churches," which were built in medieval times, yet differ from traditional medieval churches because of their circular shape.
They also might be interested in the medieval center of the island, where a historic city has been rebuilt for medieval times. In the summer, the island hosts a medieval festival that culminates with an epic jousting tournament along with archery competitions and cannon fire.
