Visit the Holy Cross Church of Dalby and see the oldest preserved stone church in Scandinavia. Built around 1060s, the Dalby Church was reconstructed several times over the centuries, and was reconstructed in the style you see today in the 1800s. Outside on the east side, where there is a garden today, you can still see the visible markings to where the church was expanded at its peak. See the carved wooden statue of St. Olaf, dating back to 1500s.
