Copenhagen is my second home. I had the opportunity to see for myself what this Danish happiness actually means. It is true that just after arriving in Denmark you feel this magical aura in the air – everyone is so positive, smiling, and the joy just radiates from them!
Apart from this extraordinary positivity of the Danes, what is so fantastic about Copenhagen? It is definitely a place pleasing to the eye. Modernity, amazing design combined with a touch of Scandinavian style give a spectacular effect. In Copenhagen you will find plenty of interesting places to visit – the oceanarium, the opera house, or Nyhavn – a characteristic harbor with colorful houses. Moreover, Copenhagen is a very multicultural place, due to the influx of people from literally all parts of the world.
What will also surprise tourists in Denmark are certainly the prices. Unfortunately, but to the lowest they do not belong. However, it’s worth being prepared for it and stop worrying about it to fully enjoy your stay in the city. Copenhagen offers an abundance of charming cafes, gourmet restaurants and exclusive boutiques. However, those who go to work in Copenhagen should not worry about this, as the level of wages is also really exceptionally high. And you have to admit, it’s hard to stop yourself from enjoying what this beautiful city has to offer. Copenhagen is also home to one of Europe’s most popular amusement parks, Tivoli. The ideal place for several hours of fun, which will provide a huge dose of excitement.
You’re probably wondering what the nightlife and entertainment in Copenhagen is like. Here the city can also positively surprise us. From Thursday to Sunday, after dark, there will be something for all fun lovers. Jazz clubs, discos for young people, quiet pubs, sophisticated and tasteful bars, or really luxurious clubs. Most of them you will find in the area of Vesterbro, Nørrebro and Østerbro districts. The Christiania district, known as the free city, may also come as a surprise. It’s a place independent of the city government, where residents legislate for themselves and are self-sufficient. It is called the city of hippies and the Danish Amsterdam in the center of Copenhagen, and such information is probably enough to guess what life is like in Christiania.
Whether you’re looking to spring for a weekend getaway to Kopenahi or it’s going to be a move, you’re certainly interested in the cheapest way to get there. Most low-cost carriers (Ryanair, Wizzair) offer really cheap connections, so if you’re lucky, you can visit Copenhagen for as little as a few dozen zlotys. It’s also worth knowing that Copenhagen is connected to Sweden’s Malmö by a bridge, so it’s also easy to get from one city to the other. Well, and it gives you the opportunity to visit two countries in one outing!
Have any of you been to Copenhagen? Do you perhaps know what makes Scandinavians so happy?
