Christiansborg Palace is located on the site of an ancient fortress that was built by Bishop Absalon (Absalon) in 1167 at the base of Copenhagen. The ruins of this fortress have survived and can look down into the cellars of the palace. The palace complex, the first buildings which were erected at the beginning of the XVIII century, was reconstructed several times, and what we see today was built between 1907 and 1928 in neo-baroque.
Christiansborg Palace is on the island called the island palace. The total length of canals that surround the palace, is about 2 miles, through them, nowadays there are eight bridges connecting the palace to Copenhagen.
Now in the palace of Christiansborg Parliament meets in Denmark (Folketing). In addition, in the palace are the Supreme Court, the Office of the Prime Minister of Denmark, the Royal Reception and the Grand Hall.
Royal Reception located in the northern part of the Christiansborg Palace, and include the private library of the Queen, the House for an audience, a big hall and the Royal Throne Room. And the throne and the interiors have been saved during the 1884 fire that destroyed the rest of the palace.
Near the parliament building are the Royal Library, Theatre Museum and the Royal Museum of "Arsenal" with a collection of antique clothing, carriages, fire-arms. There also are still acting the royal stables and parade ground for the dressage.
