Copenhagen; a cool, compact city of green cooper spires, cobbled squares filled with outdoor cafes in the summer, and fantastic, fun filled theme parks. A roisterous, swaggering city that wears its heart on its sleeve and offers a warm welcome to miilions each year. Human in scale, Copenhagen is a city with a real heart and soul.
Compact and easily walkable, the city is brimming with wonderful sights. Passengers arriving by sea are greeted by the winsome Little Mermaid, the symbol of the city. Based on the story created by local hero, Hans Christian Andersen, the diminutive little waif sits silently on her rock, gazing with sightless eyes out to sea.
The sights and sounds come and go like so many ceremonial drum rolls. At the heart of the town is Tivoli, a twenty three acre theme park that gave the young Walter Disney the idea for the string of theme parks that still bear his name. A shimmering, ethereal wonderland full of captivating lights, theatres, restaurants and thrilling fairground rides, Tivoli is the very heart and soul of Copenhagen.
Stroeget is the main shopping street; a pedestrian only thoroughfare that winds along more than two kilometres. Filled and fronted with every kind of shop you could want- from the mainstream to the downright quirky-Stroeget also has many bars, restaurants and cafes, and it hums with life at any time of the day or night.
So, enjoy these few snaps of this pretty, welcoming little city!
