Optikerne på Ove progøes Plads redefines the definition of an optical store, offering only the most unique and highest quality eyewear brands. Odense, Denmark’s third largest city, dates back to pre-Viking times which offers a rich mix of historical periods and attractions to visit. Along with it’s rich historical sights, Odense offers best shopping at the Rosengaardcentret which is the largest shopping centre in all of Denmark. The city is named after Odin, the Norse god of war, poetry and wisdom, a perfect patron for a cultural and historical hotspot.
