Little Bornholm Island (no more than 30 x 12 miles) lies in the Baltic Sea near to Sweden, where powder-white beaches in the south and heather-covered hills and cliffs in the north frame picturesque fishing villages, 12th century round churches - and, at Hammershus Slot, the ruins of Scandinavia's largest medieval castle. Come ashore at Ronne on the west coast to tour one of Bornholm's celebrated round churches, Nykirke, which, together with its sister churches, represents Bornholm's most outstanding contribution to Nordic medieval architecture. In the charming town of Gudhjem, watch glassblowers perfect their craft.
Before AD 1000 Bornholm was inhabited by Vikings. It belonged, in turn, to Denmark, the Hanseatic League, Lübeck, and Sweden. In 1660, it reverted to Danish control.
