Another travelling blog post, sorry!
At the time of writing, I am currently in Copenhagen the capital city of Denmark. Funny story, I used to think Copenhagen was in the US or somewhere in Southern Europe (no wonder I nearly failed geography!). I visited all the typical tourist attractions like the little mermaid statue (pretty tiny to be honest), Christiania (Freetown), The National Gallery of Denmark and Christenborg Palace etc. Copenhagen is a very cycle friendly city which unfortunately means you should expect cycle jams and being nearly run over by cyclists if you happen to walk into a cycle path. Not that I did that once or twice… but still cycle friendly is good and all that! very similar to Amsterdam and Berlin in that aspect.
I just want to write a bit about the freetown of Christiania which is completely separate from the Danish government. They have their own rules and are set apart from Danish society. In that regard, walking into the freetown puts you a bit on edge but it’s an interesting experience overall. The place is full of colourful graffiti and weird and wonderful sights. It’s referenced as the green light district and I’m sure a little Google will explain why you weren’t allowed to take pictures on the main street… but yes Christiania- definitely worth a visit!
Copenhagen itself is pretty expensive but then the majority of Scandinavian capital cities/countries are too (Norway anyone?). However, it’s a lovely city with a friendly atmosphere, with plenty to see and do. Worth visiting 😊
Below are some pictures from Copenhagen:
