Mile-stone

Distance from Copenhagen
This kilometre-stone is before distance was measured in Km. It is standing in Roskilde just outside Røde Port (Red Gate). The distance is 4 Miil from Copenhagen. Frederik V was King 1746-66. One "mil" is 7532,48 m. If you take a look at the kilometrestone in Copenhagen, you will see the distance to Roskilde is 30 km. 4 Miil is 129 m longer!

Well, whatever the distance really is, that is a good-looking mile stone.
