Elsinore (Helsingor) is a seaport in the eastern Denmark, near Copenhagen. Elsinore, with Kronborg Castle to the east of the town, is famous as the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet. The castle, built during the 16th century, is now used chiefly as a maritime museum, though performances of Shakespeare's tragedy are sometimes given here. A ferry links Helsingor with Helsingborg (Sweden) across the Oresund. From here you can reach the inland market town of Hillerod, site of Frederiksborg Castle, which was built in 1620 by Christian IV in Dutch Renaissance style on the site of an earlier castle. Danish kings were crowned there from 1660 to 1840, and it was a favourite royal residence until gutted by fire in 1859. It was restored, and the National Historical Museum has been there since 1878.
