Denmark

Jews have lived in Denmark for 400 years: testimony to this are the 17th century  Jewish cemeteries in Copenhagen and Fredericia. There are  Jewish cemeteries dating from the 18th and 19th centuries in nine other towns around the country.

Copenhagen Great Synagogue on Krystalgade, built in 1833, is a landmark.
