Roskilde is governed by the administrative council of Roskilde Municipality.Roskilde has a long history, dating from the pre-Christian Viking Age.The city is home to the FC Roskilde football club which play in the Danish 1st Division, the Roskilde Vikings RK rugby club, and the rowing club, Roskilde Roklub.In the 1970s, the city benefited from the opening of the university and from the completion of the Holbæk Motorway connecting it to Copenhagen.Among the largest private sector employers today are the IT firm BEC (Bankernes EDB Central) and GPI (Glim Plastic Industri), specializing in plastics.

The Risø research facility is also becoming a major employer, extending interest in sustainable energy to the clean technology sphere.Among the city's notable citizens are Absalon, the bishop who founded Copenhagen in the 12th century, L. Ring, the symbolist painter who gained fame in the 1880s, the writer Lise Nørgaard who wrote the popular Danish TV series Matador in 1978 and the rower Thomas Ebert who became an Olympic gold medallist in 2004.Roskilde, which developed as the hub of the Viking land and sea trade routes over a thousand years ago, is one of Denmark's oldest cities.Today's cathedral was completed in 1275 after five of Absalon's successors had contributed to its construction.As a result of Absalon's influence, many other churches were built in the vicinity, making Roskilde the most important town in Zealand.This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it.
