Denmark - Copenhagen

Two winters ago, my sister and I visited the capital city of Denmark. Originally we wanted to go to Talinn in Estland that period, but due to a failure of Estonian Air we had to change our plans. One of our friends used to live in Copenhagen for a while and she told us how nice it was there.

Indeed, the town appealed a lot to us. It felt cosy and not to big, so you can easily walk to every part of it. We stayed in a hotel near the Rathus (Town Hall) which was quite in the center. Still we didn't get a lot of noise inside, thanks to special glazed windows.

We were there shortly before Christmas, which added to the atmosphere. There were many Christmas markets around. Like all tourists, we saw the landmarks of this town and also made a trip further inland.

Here are a few pics from our Copenhagen trip.

This is a sight of Nyhavn (new harbor) which is well-known with the tourists. Look at the typical coloring of the houses. Reminds me a bit of Bergen in Norway.

And this is is the Little Mermaid from the tales of Hans Christian Andersen. She looks a  bit lonely, doesn't she?

This is for those who love Shakespeare. We are seeing Kronborg palace in Helsingör (or Elsinore in 'Hamlet'). There is a Hamlet experience for those who want to. Helsingör is about 40 minutes by train from Copenhagen.
