You also hear about the fortress or castle Kronborg(to the right in tne picture) in Shakespears Hamlet. The reason for that is that the danes where popular actors during the 16:th and 17:th century so they propably mouthed to the authors here about this big castle that was built by Eric af Pommern after he had fixed a new law that said all ships who passed here had to pay a fee. This law where written in the end of 15:th century and it made the town grow because all the sailors on the ships needed to fill on their proviant and also took a beer or two in the harbour.
