Copenhagen is completely different from what you think about it: historically rich, youth-oriented, sophisticated and at the same time outspoken. This city can be called a huge playground with hundreds of entertainment. There are parks, nightclubs, and trendy shops. And on the other hand, it is full of historical palaces and museums in which the treasures of the Vikings are exhibited. If you have not yet gathered in Copenhagen, you should hurry — this city falls in love with itself at first sight.
Copenhagen Airport is located in Kastrup, just 8 km south of the center of Copenhagen. It is Denmark's main international airport and the largest airport in Scandinavia. The airport serves 60 scheduled airlines and more than 62,000 passengers per day. In August 2019, the airport took the sixth place in Europe in terms of passenger convenience, and in September it entered the list of the best airports in the world. In fact, everything is quite restrained here. This is not such a large and functional airport as in Singapore, where you can literally live for several days with great comfort. The airport in Copenhagen most likely wants to welcome, quickly serve and comfortably carry passengers on. Why is it one of the best? Because everything works quickly and like a clock.
Bus: several Movia bus routes run from the airport to the center of Copenhagen. Free shuttles run between the airport terminals. The trip takes about 45 minutes and costs $ 5.
Radical changes have taken place in Copenhagen over the past thirty years: it has evolved from a predominantly industrial city to one where convenience, quality of life and pedestrians are important in the first place.
You will quickly feel the difference with other cities that are still striving for industrialization. And you will begin to enjoy the leisurely pace of life in a beautiful European city, slowly scrolling the bicycle pedals.
Copenhagen's old harbor is crowded with restaurants and cafes. Here is the place to take a cup of coffee and have a look at the picturesque row of renovated 18th-century houses. It’s best to come here as early as possible. For example, take a morning cup of coffee and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, light music and food. Old wooden vessels are also moored in the harbor, between which it will also be interesting to stroll.
Now it’s hard to believe, but for most of its existence it was a seedy part of the city. And now it is one of the best places in the city for walks. In addition, here stands the house where Hans Christian Andersen lived once.
This is an attraction where you can spend several hours without even noticing it. It collected a huge number of artifacts from all eras of the past of Denmark. For example, a sundial from the Bronze Age dating back to 1400 BC. A statue of a bronze horse on this watch pulls a golden disk with a picture of the sun. According to Scandinavian mythology, this is how the sun moved in the sky.
Also in this museum a lot is told about the Vikings and hundreds of artifacts that remain after them are shown.
Locals adore hot dogs. They are made with Copenhagen's signature sausage called rød pølse. They put it in a soft bun, pour it with ketchup and mustard. Usually this is a basic set, but they can also use different additives. It's the cheapest and fastest snack, which you must definitely try in Copenhagen.
There is nothing more Danish than smorrebrod. Special sandwiches with a whole mountain of different ingredients. Usually this is a whole grain bread with fish or meat on the top, then vegetables and herbs, and watered with delicious sauce. Smorrebrods are sold here almost everywhere.
One of the most traditional dishes are meatballs. The meatballs in Copenhagen do not taste like any other. As in any Scandinavian country, however.
Copenhagen pickled herring is sold as street food. As part of smorrebrod, and with boiled potatoes, and as an independent snack. It is said that in Scandinavia locals catch the most delicious herring in the world. So to visit Copenhagen and not to try the local herring is actually a crime.
