Bornholm occupies 588 km2. The most important city is the local capital Rønne . At present, the island has a population of over 40,000. Local people speak a special dialect - Bornholmian, which is included in the Red Book of Endangered Languages UNESCO. Tourist, especially those who arrive repeatedly, are often attracted by local gastronomic specialties, e.g. pastry, beer, cheese and other dairy products - and chocolate. Everywhere within the island, you can come across the history and original craft and art, often made of glass and clay. There are 15 medieval churches, many of which had been built as fortified since in the history they had to resist pirates and foreign armies. Some of these churches are considered as unique architectonic monuments. They are distinctive by their circular ground plan and special layout. The oldest and best-known round construction of this type is the Østerlars Church. There are five round churches on Bornholm. Cities Rønne and Nexø are proud of approximately 300 wooden and timbered houses. Many of them were heavily damaged during the Second World War but they were reconstructed. Other significant historic monuments on Bornholm are e.g. a medieval fort named Hammershus and a windmill in Gudhjem . .
