Denmark is a modern country that puts a lot into tradition. Christiansborg Palace is the place where the royal family has lived since the construction of the first palace in 1167. Today, this building is home to the Danish Parliament, the Prime Minister's Office, and the seat of the Supreme Court. All over the world, only Christiansborg Palace contains all three branches of government. The royal family no longer lives here but uses some rooms of the palace for important receptions and gatherings. The main part of the palace built in the year 1928, is the last in a series of palaces that stood on this place and bore the same name. Parts of the castle are older and belong to various architectural eras.
