INTRODUCTION TO COPENHAGEN

Sprawling over the Danish islands of Zealand and Amager and oozing with Scandinavian style, Denmark has come a long way since its days as a sleepy fishing village of the Vikings way back in the 10th century BC. Nowadays its contemporary culture and progressive ideals are omnipresent, from the well-dressed 20-somethings cycling near Amalienborg Palace to the striking architecture of Arken Museum of Modern Art. At first Denmark might present as a methodic, even regimented, apparatus of a city, one that's hard to truly submerge into. But a spot of gallery hopping in the Meatpacking District or a night amidst the bar scene of Vesterbro should quickly change that. Essentials on the Copenhagen to-do list include admiring giant tapestries and chandeliers at Christiansborg, and rediscovering your inner child at Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest and most beautiful theme parks in the world. A day of shopping on Strøget may drain your financial resources, but you can easily ease the pain with a bout of beer tasting at Visit Carlsberg. In a city full of solutions, there's also an answer for too much beer tasting, with Pølsevogn hotdog stands found on every corner of the city. By the end of your time in Denmark's capital you'll understand why so many adore this city, and why it ranks so highly on many livable city lists. From the free-spirited anarchists of Christiania to the Danish royal family and their harras of horses, your Denmark stint is sure to leave you a little head-over-heels yourself.
