I spent the last week in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. In Sweden, Copenhagen is often referred to as the gateway to Europe. There is a distinct difference between cities in mainland Europe and Scandinavian cities, and I must say I did feel like Copenhagen was a bit of a transition. Copenhagen had a wide range as a city. There were really old, beautiful yet run rundown buildings. As soon as we looked at it, we whispered that there is no way such beautiful buildings would be in that kind of a condition in Sweden. They would have been better taken care of. Then there were really modern buildings, and the odd Soviet style massive featureless blocks of concrete as well. And there there was Christania. As soon as we entered, it felt like it was made in someone’s dreams. An house made of window frames, colorful paintings of absurd things greeted us. It was also very littered and super dirty. I really enjoyed my visit to Copenhagen and hope to visit again soon. Below are some pictures from my visit.
Well, that’s about it. Was a lovely trip, I thought. I’m always surprised by how much small cities have to offer. Copenhagen has a population of like 600,000 people, yet had a vibrant city life and a sense of coziness to it.
