About Copenhagen

The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is one of the liveliest Scandinavian cities, partly because of its many harbours and seafronts. The Nyhavn district is the busiest and most charming part of town, with its Medieval and Rennaisance-era architecture and its many cafes and restaurants. You can also take a boat tour here, hopping into one of the boats encircling the harbor.

Copenhagen is the largest city of Denmark with its population of 1.2 million people. Noteworthy because of its expansive gardens and parks, the city attracts many tourists who flock to sites such as the Rosenborg Castle, the National Museum of Denmark, the Nyhavn district, the Citadel (Old Town), Christiania, and Tivoli Gardens.

Winters in Copenhagen are cold, and summers lukewarm. Therefore, the best time to visit Copenhagen is the summer when the sun sets very late. Not only will you be able to enjoy weather that is not too hot, but also experience long days where twilight extends for many hours into the evening, only becoming totally dark after midnight. 

Transportation from the airport into the city center by bus or metro is extremely easy. Public transportation is widespread and very easy to use, but taxis are expensive. As it is one of the European cities with the highest living standards, one should be reminded that food and drinks are relatively expensive as well.
