I visited Denmark in June 2013, the weather was cold (for me) but a lot of sunshine. It’s so quaint and quiet, you almost feel like you are intruding.
The City and Around
The city looks quite small but it’s very charming. So many people on bicycles and so few on cars, it’s great to see that. People were out and about enjoying the sunshine. I noticed how different the street lights are, no view hindering lamposts. They’re suspended on wires and it looks rather good. There’s a lot of modern architecture around the city as well.
It’s a lovely fountain with the Steaming Bull Statue atop. There’s a lot to capture around it as well. It’s located near the harbour with peculiar sculptures on the lamp posts around it; never seen anything like it. They all look like characters out of a fairytale.
The Little Mermaid Statue
No visit to Copenhagen is complete without visiting here. There was far too much crowd when I visited but I also spotted an amused bird. It’s a shame people vandalize it. I love the photo I’ve taken of it, almost looks like she’s longing to go somewhere.
The winter palace of the royal family. It has an octagonal courtyard and there are four palaces out of which two are open to the public. Oh my, the rooms are stunning. I particularly liked the hall with the modern paintings. There’s a lot of beautiful baroque work as well.
I then went to Norway on cruise. The sight of windmills is amazing. The Baltic sea looks so calm.
