Historic landmarks in Copenhagen Denmark, one of the oldest and most beautiful capitals in Europe, is also declared a green capital for 2014. For this reason, there is a network of canals in Copenhagen where you can take a boat tour.
The center is compact and almost everything is within walking distance, so there is no need to use public transport for transportation. One of the first things that will undoubtedly make you feel like leaving the station is the many parked bikes. The city has one of the finest cycle paths in Scandinavia - with a total length of about 300 kilometers.
This is followed by the Rådhuspladsen and the Copenhagen City Hall building. On the right and the side is the monument of Hans Christian Andersen, who may be the most famous Dane.
After the square began Stroget - until recently it was the longest pedestrian zone in Europe, but this summer Plovdiv is the leader in the ranking. The neighborhoods on both sides of the Stroget are very pleasant for a walk, but if you decide not to turn around and walk just across the main street, after about 1.5 km you will reach Nyhavn.
From the round tower, we noticed that the Rosenborg castle was not far away. So, we decided unanimously to go to him to hide from the rain. The Rosenborg Slot was built in 1633 in Danish Renaissance style. Today, there is the Museum of the Danish Kings. Here are the royal jewels and the crown of King Christian IV. The castle also has beautiful gardens. The Marble Church (Frederiks Kirke) is located near the Amalieborg Palace, so you can not miss it. The dome of the church, which is the largest church in Scandinavia, is supported by 12 columns. The design of the building took place in 1740, but due to the budget cut and the death of the architect, it was ready for completion 150 years later.
The entrance to the church is free, but there is a dock boarding fee, and there is a view of the Amalieborg, the gardens, the Opera House and the Oresund Strait. Amalienborg Slot is a complex of four identical Rococo-style buildings and is the residence of the Danish royal family. If you are already interested in Copenhagen, you probably already know - The Little Mermaid is really small! The Church of Our Savior (Vor Frelsers Kirke) is very attractive with its spiral tower, 90 meters high and 400 steps to the top.
It's in the Christianhaven neighborhood - we saw it only from the water. The boat trip ends where it starts - Nyhavn. For me this is the most picturesque place in Copenhagen. During the short time of our stay in the city, we came back here several times - these colorful houses give an incredible charm to the place. The Christiansborg Slot has been the royal family's palace for many years, but due to a large fire 2 centuries ago, it moved to the Amelijborg Palace and is no longer back.
On the other hand, here is the Danish Parliament. The tower, which towers over the palace, is 106 meters high, making it the tallest one in Copenhagen, from which the view of the city should be the best. The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum of Art has gathered an incredible collection of ancient sculptures from Rome, Egypt and ancient Greece. It was founded by beer tycoon Karl Jacobsen. Tivoli is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world. Opened in 1843, it is one of Copenhagen's main attractions. Mostly summer works, as well as some of the winter holidays - Halloween, Christmas and New Year.
