A Postcard From Copenhagen

Happy Saturday lovelies,

Nowadays we’re used to thinking of travel as the ‘fun’ bit of life, but enjoyment isn’t a reason why it shouldn’t also do some very serious things for us. One picture never tells the whole story and that’s why I got bunch of them so I can relive my Copenhagen trip and share it with you 🙂 🙂 :).

The statistics are showing that is catching up with Paris, London and other mega popular destination. From its beautiful old architecture to its futuros attire, this city has so much to offer.

The city is super organized, their dedicated bike culture is next level and either you arrive by plain, train or a car, there are people that are willing to help you to get to your final destination. The public transport is on point, everybody is fluent in English so book your ticket, pack your bags and give a visit.pictureperfect_chains_nyhavn_harbor_denmark_copenhagen

There are so many reasons to keep visit and explore Copenhagen. The most iconic Nyhavn, is a centuries old harbor, and with its old colorful buildings it’s the classic place to go. Originally, Nyhavn was a busy commercial port where ships from all over the world would dock. But today is the ” Eiffel tower” of Copenhagen and its filled with people enjoying the relaxed atmosphere by the canal, jazz music and great food. But it’s definitely not the only thing to see in Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is known for good contemporary design,  furniture, lights and… the absolutely stunning city architecture. Besides the major historic architecture, Copenhagen is filled with contemporary buildings of the highest quality.

The Round Tower is one of the proofs that this city is where the architectures are giving their best. It is a 17th-century tower located in central Copenhagen, Denmark, and one of the many architectural projects of Christian IV of Denmark, built as an astronomical observatory.

Let’s not forget about Rosenberg Castle. Situated in the city center, and surrounded by the most amazing botanical gardens is the 400-year-old castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV.

Other then the old architecture, this city offers a modern, edgy and bold designs too. The waterside is where the modern buildings are the most so keep that in mind and do not skip those parts of the city 🙂 🙂 🙂

Right on the other side on that modern part of the city is Freetown Christiania. An experimental hippie village of about 850 to 1,000 residents, with the 70s feel to it

has become one of the most famous touristic attractions.

While in Copenhagen, it is inevitable not to enjoy the super delicious Danish food. Their cuisine has been upfront and famous by its organic and healthy choices. The Danish dishes are next level and also quite expensive but very worth trying. Do not miss the Danish hot dog. Be aware that a normal dish or breakfast will cost you around 10 Euros. The same goes for the coffee. But, however you’re sure that you are investing your money in a tasty and healthy food.

Also known and not to be missed attraction in Copenhagen is Tivoli Gardens amusement park. The park opened on 15 August 1843 and is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world, after Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg, also in Denmark. Fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen visited many times, as did Walt Disney who even found the inspiration to his own Disney World here. The daily ticket for the park is around 15 Euros but if you want to get on the roller coasters or the other rides it is an extra pay.

The Little Mermaid many years ago became a popular tourist attraction and it soon became an unofficial mascot for the entire city. The sculpture is made of bronze and granite and was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale about a mermaid who gives up everything to be united with a young, handsome prince on land. It is definitely overhyped because it is tiny and nothing special, but Copenhagen its known by this statue so if you have a chance give it a visit.

These are some of the many attractions that Copenhagen offers, so I won’t stop here and hopefully one day in the near future I’ll be able to go back and revisit all the city beauties. What do you think about this place. Have you been before or is it on your bucket list? I’m eager to hear your opinion in the comments below.

Till next time…

Happy Traveling…

    I went to Copenhagen a year ago and I loved it so much! The Danish street food is simply amazing and the city has so much to offer. It’s no wonder it’s been named one of the best destinations for 2019. Love all your photos, by the way! You really managed to capture the beauty of Copenhagen. x
