The fairytale that is Copenhagen

Palaces and castles, colors and fairytales, and at the same time modern architecture, impressive bridges, incredible feats of engineering, canals, beautiful squares and a flawless system of urban transport, Copenhagen has it all.

20.10.2021

Copenhagen is a vibrant metropolis of impressive architecture and design; a beautiful, spotless city, and a fairly permanent place on the list of cities with the highest standard of living, but also at a corresponding cost.

The capital of Denmark, or «the port of the merchants», as is the translation of the word Copenhagen, is located in the eastern part of the country. Most of the city is built on the island of Zealand, while a smaller part of the city is also located on the island of Amager. It has a population of 528,208 inhabitants (1,918,239 in the metropolitan area).

It is worth noting that the University of Copenhagen is one of the leading research institutes in Europe, with nine Nobel Prize winners and one Turing Prize winner.
