Hello and welcome to the lovely old town of Sorø.
Sorø was founded in 1142 between the three lakes - Sorø lake, Pedersborg lake and Tuel lake.
The town has an old historic center with the old monastery church and "Sorø academy" placed next to Sorø lake as a beautiful tourist attraction. Also Sorø square is worth a visit, here you can sit and watch the life of the town, maybe with a sausage from the local "sausage man", or an icecream from "Emils chocolate", voted the best icecream shop in the region of Zealand.
