Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark

Denmark is home to the oldest monarchy in the world and many of the palaces and castles that have housed the Danish Royal Family are open to visitors. Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen is the winter residence of Her Majesty The Queen and considered to be one of the most beautiful palace squares in Europe. Evoking images of fairy tales, Rosenborg Castle was built in the Dutch Renaissance style in the early 1600s. Visit Christiansborg Palace for a look at the only building in the world that houses all three branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial. Today, the Royal Reception rooms are used by the Danish Queen when entertaining foreign heads of state. Take home an authentic souvenir from the Royal Copenhagen shop where you can find modern replicas of royal china. Your Distinctive Voyages host will be able to answer any questions or act on special requests related to your exclusive tour of Copenhagen.

Onofrio Fountain, Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Magnificent Dubrovnik, known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic," is surely one of the most beautiful ports in the Mediterranean. Discover medieval Old Dubrovnik starting at Pile Gate, part of Fortress Bokar, the traditional entrance to the Old Town. Games of Thrones fans will recognize it as “King’s Landing” and you can follow the steps of Tyron Lannister and Lord Varys who stood on its ramparts while planning the defense of the city. Well-preserved Dubrovnik boasts a number of ancient structures including Onofrio Fountain, built in the 15th century, a Franciscan Monastery and the Old Pharmacy which opened in 1317.
