Capital of the North: Copenhagen Photos from Onur Türk's blog

If I were to call Copenhagen the capital of the north, I think I would not be unfair to other cities. As the capital and largest city of Denmark, it is a place with a rich history, culture and modern lifestyle. The city, which is on the list of the best in the world in terms of living, exceeds the expectations of its tourists.

 

Here are some important places to visit in Copenhagen:

 

Tivoli Garden and Amusement Park: Tivoli, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, is a place full of various entertainments, restaurants and concerts. It offers a colorful and lively atmosphere, especially in summer. It is right across from the train station and does not only appeal to children. You will see that adults spend more time inside than children.
 

 

Copenhagen Harbour and Nyhavn: Nyhavn, the old harbour, is famous for its colourful buildings, cafes and harbour views. Here you can take a walk, eat at various restaurants and take boat tours.

 

 

 

Little Mermaid Statue: Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, the Little Mermaid Statue is one of the symbols of Copenhagen. It is located on the coast of Langelinie. And I think it's an overrated statue. When you go, you can say, "Was that it?" If you have time, go, because when you think of Copenhagen, the first symbol that comes to mind is this statue.
 

Rosenborg Palace: Built in the 17th century, this palace houses a rich collection of crown jewels and historical artifacts. The beautiful gardens of the palace are also open to visitors. You can visit the gardens for free.

Copenhagen Royal Library (The Royal Library): This library, which is a center of education and culture, attracts attention with its modern architecture. It has a large collection of books and impressive interiors.
 

Amalienborg Palace: Amalienborg Palace, which is still the official residence of the royal family, consists of four different palace buildings. You can visit the daily changing of the guard ceremony to watch their daily lives.

 

 

Nationalmuseet: The perfect place to explore Denmark's history and culture. It contains archaeological artifacts, works of art and ethnographic collections.
 

Frederiksborg Palace: Located near the city of Hillerød, this palace is beautifully situated overlooking the lake. The 17th-century palace is one of the largest Renaissance palaces in Denmark.
 

Louisiana Museum of Art: Located a little away from Copenhagen, this museum is famous for its contemporary art. It is known for its location by the beach and its beautiful gardens.

 

 

Botanical Garden (Botanisk Have): This botanical garden, belonging to the University of Copenhagen, offers visitors an experience intertwined with nature with different plant species, greenhouses and open-air areas.
 

A small note: You can explore the city by bike. Bicycle use is quite common in Copenhagen. Exploring the city by bike is a preferred form of transportation for locals. Bicycle traffic moves very fast, so be sure to pay attention whether you are a pedestrian or a driver.
