interesting facts:
Frigate "Jylland" ("Jutland") was launched in 1860 as the last of the Danish steam-powered wooden ships with sails. Ship with a displacement tonnage of nearly 2500 tons was armed with more than 40 cannons and manned by more than a 400-man crew. During her 30-year service she took part in the Danish War in 1864 and later had only representative functions. After the active service she was used firstly as barracks and in 1908 she became a part of the museum exhibition in Aarhus. Today she is in a dry dock in Ebeltoft Museum as world's longest (94 m) of the preserved wooden ships.
