About Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a truly modern northern city with a great atmosphere. You can find heaps of cyclists coming in and out on the streets, which is not a big surprise, because it has already won the award of bicycle friendly city several times. Even those heard about its famous restaurants, who don't follow the gastronomy trends. Copenhagen is home of castles, palaces, varied museums and don't miss the LEGO store in the centre.

Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark. Thanks to its outstanding transport facilities, you can easily reach the southern part of Denmark and the western part of Sweden from its port and railway station.
