    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    Formerly something of an off of the beaten track capital, Copenhagen has spent the last few years clamoring its way up the European tourist spot ladder, and winning over many a travel critic on the way. A confident blend of ancient and modern architecture has stormed the city center, turning it into a classy, glassy and alluring place to be, while locals are slowly losing their ‘stay in’ habits and taking to the enviable cafes and restaurants, and the city’s cozy vibes bring many tourists back again and again.

    It’s a city of cobbled squares, canals and glistening copper spires, mixed with fashionable designer stores like Vesterbro, where even browsing feels like it should not be free. It all comes to life during the annual Jazz Festival or you can soak up the hollering vibes of a night at the lively opera, drift down to the harbor to spot The Little Mermaid draped over a rock, explore Hamlet’s spectacular home, Kronborg Castle, or take a glance out over it all from the heights of Round Tower.

    Take a canal tour, passing the city’s best sites on a gentle wave before heading out into the harbor. In a tenderly lit city center square you’ll stumble across the splendor of the royal’s winter retreat at Amalienborg Palace while shoppers will fall in love with the world’s longest pedestrian-only street, Stroget, which caters for almost any taste. Copenhagen’s museums are pretty special, too, and include The National Museum (which covers pretty much everything about Denmark, right back to ancient times), and the Louisiana, a world-class center of modern art.

    If it’s a big night out that you are looking for, Carlsberg and schnapps at indie mainstay Rust are the way to go. A day is best punctuated with Denmark’s pastries known locally as Vienna Bread or meals of sild which is also referred to as pickled herring. Snap a picture next to the hairy-hatted royal palace guard, head out into the pancake-flat countryside and eye the tiny rustic churches, or, if you’re here at the height of summer, take on Europe’s biggest rock festival as Roskilde.

    It’s all very cultured, colorful and varied, and no longer a city hiding in its well-developed shell. It is also not European classic, but fascinating, nonetheless.

    Did You Know? People who live in or who come from Copenhagen are called Copenhageners. Copenhagen was the European Capital of Culture in 1996.

Already back in year 1350 was the site a merchant place for selling herrings and was already then sanctioned by the king. Especially in the days of The Hanseatic League’ herring fishing every fall attracted up to 30.000 foreign merchants and that had a huge influence of the development of the village.

        When the herring fishing stopped in around year 1500 the first house were established close to the coast; it was mainly local fishermen who settled here. At the same time the area was officially handed over to Dutch settlers who were living in the neighboring village of Store Magleby.

      • Malmö
        Malmö is the third largest city in Sweden and was founded in 1275 while the most southern province of Sweden (Scania - Skåne) was still Swedish (It then belonged to Norway and Denmark for a long time). The population today is about 280 000 people and rapidly growing. After some big problems in the city during the 80s and early 90s the city today is booming, all thanks to the new bridge connection between Sweden and Denmark, one of the worlds longest bridges. Malmö is referred to as the City of Parks since the whole city is filled with different Parks, even the whole beach area is a giant Park.

        When visiting the beach, don't forget to do Sauna Swedish style and then jump into the sea (all year around) at the Cold Bath House (Kallbadhuset). After the sauna, visit the new harbour areas of Malmö and have a stroll around an amazing area filled with modern architecture, don't miss Calatravas Turning Torso, the highest residential building in Europe. Spend the evening at the wonderful old fashioned Lilla Torg, filled with restaurants or why not at Möllevångstorget if you are more into the alternative scene.

        Malmö also offers a lot of cultural events. The Malmö Festival in August is an annual high point of music, dance and other cultural events creating a big citywide party, and with names like Simon Burke and Dolly Parton on the 2008 concert calendar Malmö has also gained its status as a major concert event arena. If you are more into arts and antiques, Malmö satisfies this part of cultural life as well. Come see Malmö!

        The most popular site in Roskilde is probably its fantastic viking ship museum.

This collection includes a ship 30m in length - the largest ever recovered.

        The museum has recently made news as they have completed the restoration of one of the scuttled ships and will attempt to sail her back to her home port of Dublin, Ireland powered only by her sails.

From the station you can hop on a train to Copenhagen. From early morning and until midnight the leave every 10 or 20 minutes. There are also train to Gilleleje further northwest and Hilleroed to the west, the bus terminal is also located on one side of the station and the ferries to Sweden dock 50-100 meters from the station.

In case you are wondering why there are so many beer, wine and liquer stores in the city it is simply because lots of people from Sweden go to Denmark to buy exactly these products at half their regular price in Sweden.
