Visit Copenhagen - Best of Copenhagen
The Danish capital, Copenhagen, has grown up from the quiet girl next door, to the most vivacious and super sexy modern woman in all of Scandinavia. Funky new architecture perched gloriously at the edges of historic cobbled walk ways, and rubbing shoulders with a cultural diversity that is evident throughout the city. Safe, fascinating and romantic, the juxtaposition of Cinderella and flashes of world class metropolis, will take your breath away.
The city will leave you gasping with wonder at the kind of tourism potential it holds. Here, you'll find the Parliament (Folketing) at Christiansborg, and the residence of the Royal Family at Amalienborg. Due to its laid back culture, Copenhagen is also considered to be Scandinavia's most relaxed capital city. With those cobbled streets and historical buildings in every corner, the city exudes a distinctly European feel, a friendly street-life, and unique café culture that will make you want to return time and time again. The best way to explore the city is to wander it at your leisure. You can easily sense that nautical vibe everywhere in the city as it is reflected in the colorful shore-side homes of Nyhavn and tall ships docked along the quays.
Today, the city is home to a great number of cutting-edge restaurants that includes the world-renowned such as Noma. The city stands out for being the capital of one of the happiest places on Earth and is a traveller’s paradise for a number of attractions that it harbours in its landscape. For those, who want to enjoy the Danish food culture and the New Nordic Cuisine, this city definitely proves to be a haven. Copenhagen also opens up vitas of Danish countryside bestowed with its many thousands of kilometres of coastline. Much said, the city is definitely the one that defines the contours of travel and tourism today. Each one of you should visit Copenhagen at least once and experience all that it has to offer considering the best time to visit Copenhagen.
