Summer brake at Kokkedal Castle

“We all have within us a center of stillness surrounded by silence.”  – Dag Hammarskjold

After the long period of intensive work and study we took a well deserved short vacation at the beautiful Kokkedal castle in Denmark. We have been to Copenhagen area on several occasions but for some reason always missed this little piece of heaven.

Overlooking the sea, this pearl is surrounded by beautiful park, several golf courses and a riding school. The setting really gives the meaning to the words serenity.

Although we felt slightly out of place among the people visiting the beautiful castle as our social standing was obviously (and I mean obviously!) not the same, we never felt unwelcome or overlooked by the friendly stuff.

Long walks in the park, relaxing at the miniature spa of this beautiful mansion, watching the horses and the golfers, all brought much necessary peace to mind and soul.  This little oasis of serenity and calmness really helped us to take a breath and keep looking forward.

Here are some photos from this beautiful place:
