Fredericia (Danish pronunciation: [fʀɛðəˈʀedɕa]) is a town located in Fredericia municipality in the eastern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark, in a sub-region known locally as Trekanten, or The Triangle. It was founded in 1650 by Frederick III, after whom it was named.

The city itself has a population of 39,914 (1 January 2013)[1] and the Fredericia municipality has a population of 50,193 (2012)

Фредери́сия (дат. Fredericia [fʀɛðəˈʀedɕa]) — город и порт в Дании, центр коммуны Фредерисии, на западном берегу пролива Малый Бельт. Соединен мостом с островом Фюн. Население — 44,9 тыс. (1973); 28.198 (1985); 37.074 (2006).

Основан в 1650 году Фредериком III как крепость для защиты полуострова Ютландия. Обладал особыми привилегиями, включая свободу вероисповедания и освобождение от налогов. После разрушительной осады 1849 года датчане изгнали солдат Пруссии и Шлезвиг-Гольштейна, что привело к заключению перемирия. В городе сохранились первоначальные восточные укрепительные валы и общая могила защитников города на кладбище церкви Сан-Тринитатис кирхе (1689)
