The Church of Our Saviour is in the district of Christianshavn and his extravagant spiral tower can be seen from the distance, along the Inderhavn.
The church was built at the behest of Christian V and was consecrated in 1696 after 14 years of work.
In Baroque style, with red brick exterior, within the Church of Our Savior we can admire the altar consecrated in 1732 which depicts the scene of Jesus in Gethsemane; the beautiful wooden organ of 1698, whose structure rests on the relief statues of two elephants; and the baptismal font donated in 1702 by the wife of Frederick IV, with the hope of having a child.
The original tower with spiral spire was added to the church later, in 1752, and is built of oak wood with a iron-gilded railing. 400 steps through narrow and steep passages lead to the dizzying summit from wich opens a wonderful view of the city.

Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
