Very quiet and beautiful interior. Greetings, Maryla
Dear Maryla. It is a guiet interior as is commen for most Danish village churches. However the colour af the benches is rather unusual. But it is well suited with the room I think.
Hello Jens :) Yes, it is this quiet clean green drew my attention. Tell me please, what is the importance of the ship hanging in the ceiling. Is it associated with a particular event?
Half of all danish churches have one or more ship models as decoration. The oldest is from round 1600. A church at the vest coast of Jutland has 14 ship models. You can find the same tradition in Sweden, Norway and in the former danish regions in northern Germany.
I don’t know the background for the ship in St. Tåstrup church, but it vas build in 1981 and given to the church by a local resident. Se more here: http://netkontor.dk/ks/show.php

Thanks very much! and for your explanation and for two links to very interesting sites. I looked at they with great interest. Especially 'Kirkeskibe i Danmark' is very simply wonderful. Yesterday I spent all evening watching the Danish ships :) I admired their performance, and often perfect synchronization with the church's inside colour (f.ex. FREDERIK D.6 in Hornbæk). I am very impressed by that all.
Thank you once more for this informations. With the best wishes, Maryla :)
