Best Things to Do in Copenhagen
After going through Miami I decided to visit the 3 main cities in the Nordic countries: Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo, also known as the Scandinavian triangle.
I started my tour in Copenhagen the capital and most populated city of Denmark (language: Danish, currency: Danish crown). Copenhagen is located on the island of Zealand and emerged as a village of Vikings fishermen to become nowadays a city and port that boasts a wide variety of architectural, cultural and one of the most eco-friendly cities in the world.
The most recognized place in Copenhagen is Nyhavn or "New Port" which is a canal with direct access to the center of the city and where there are several bars and restaurants in the open air. The buildings and houses around the canal are very colorful and well preserved making it the most photographed place in Copenhagen.
Denmark has a constitutional monarchy as a form of government and it resides in Copenhagen in its two palaces which are also a tourist attraction.
Christiansborg Palace is the headquarters of the Folketing or Danish Parliament, it is also the office of the Danish Prime Minister and Supreme Court, the current building is the latest in a series of castles and palaces built successively on the same site since the construction of the first castle In 1167.
The second Palace in the Danish capital is the Amalienborg Palace, which is the residence of the Danish royal family and in my opinion the most beautiful one consisting of 4 buildings around a square located next to the city's bay.
Right in front of the Amalienborg Palace you can see the Copenhagen Opera which is used only for ballet and opera.
Very close to the Copenhagen Opera House is the Skuespilhuset or Royal Danish Playhouse which is used for dramatic theater and also of a modern architecture.
The center of the city is marked by Kongens Nytorv Square or New King's Square surrounded by several important buildings such as Charlottenborg Palace, Thott Palace and the Royal Theater of Copenhagen.
I also highly recommend visiting the Church of Our Savior which has a tower with gold finishes very striking and is also the place with the best view of the city.
As food, Denmark's traditional dish is the Smørrebrød which is an open sandwich and consists of a slice of bread with greased butter and can carry any type of fish, meat, egg or vegetable combined or alone.
And as a nightlife, Copenhagen is the capital of the Nordic countries with more bars and nightclubs, besides having more accessible costs than the others and for which I recommend you venture out for drinks in this city.
Finally, something that I want to point out from Copenhagen and Denmark is that it is one of the countries and cities with the best quality of life in the world, as well as the other Nordic countries, but what caught my attention since I flew over the sea you can see several windmills being one of its main sources of energy, you can also admire from the air the bridge and Øresund tunnel that connects Denmark with Sweden and is also an architectural wonder in tune with the environment. And in the city the bicycle is one of the main means of transport or alternatively they have electric car stations that you can rent for time. There are many examples of how we in society can be much more environmentally friendly, something that should be a priority for the rest of the world, and Copenhagen is a great example so it gained my admiration.
I say goodbye with a video in 4k of Copenhagen.
