A weekend in Copenhagen
I've been in many places in Europe and almost in all Scandinavian countries. Except Denmark. And as it turned out I've had one of my best friends living right in the capital of Denmark - Copenhagen. So it was time to throw them a visit.
Our trip began with a beautiful sunrise in Riga airport.
It was a beautiful sunny day.
The temperature was just about -3 degrees, although it felt like -20.
Despite the cold you can see bicycles everywhere.
Denmark is a very windy country. You can see how strong the winds are.
Pretty cool toilets right behind the add box.
Interesting traffic lights. How do they drive here? :)
Probably the most popular place in Copenhagen - Nyhavn.
Fish restaurant in Nyhavn.
We were lucky to witness such a beautiful weather.
Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Nyhavn is a 17th century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen.
Serving as a "heritage harbour", the canal has many historical wooden ships.
It is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants.
Indeed it looks pretty awesome.
The Memorial Anchor at the end of Nyhavn.
Frederik's Church, popularly known as The Marble Church for its architecture.
This is a Evangelical Lutheran church.
Statue of Frederick V by Jacques François Joseph Saly.
Royal Guard in Frederick VIII's Palace in Amalienborg.
Amalienborg palace and the Marble Church seen with the Amalie Garden in the foreground, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Copenhagen Opera House
Beautiful garden by the channel.
Copenhagen statue of Michelangelo's David.
Submarine and a navy ship by the river bank.
Nice place to sit and admire the view.
We were here - in Copenhagen.
Steaming bulls statue.
Churchillparken is a public park in Copenhagen. It received its current name in 1965 to commemorate Winston Churchill and the British assistance in the liberation of Denmark during World War II.
Very interesting way to prevent windscreen whippers from freezing to the windshield.
The Little Mermaid statue. We didn't reach the real statue so I took a photo of the souvenir.
Another unique traffic light.
Kids are playing basketball despite the snow.
Beautiful view on winter park.
Rosenborg Castle - a renaissance castle located in Copenhagen.
Metro ticket check. Very stylish.
The widest and largest trains I've ever seen here.
They can easily fit a bicycle without taking lots of space.
Lego world. Quite inspiring.
Most of the figures are much larger than I am.
Found a huge fish as well :)
Very interesting machine for paying with coins.
As a real Scandinavian country they all believe in Elves.
Very interesting idea to display a temperature on a building.
I've no idea what this sign means.
Christiania, also known as Freetown Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen. As you can see it is STRICTLY forbidden to take pictures there because of the light drugs selling politics.
No photos signs absolutely everywhere.
The main street is called the Pusher Street which is famous for selling hash and skunk weed.
This is like a country in a country with its own laws.
Christiania is a very unique and interesting place to visit and see. It's free of charge as long as you obey the rules. This is an entrance to the cafe.
DEspite that everyone is smoking weed here you can find signs like this one.
Every vase has only two flowers in it.
The huge guy in the corner is really choosing a machine gun to buy. He was sitting with a serious face there for 20 minutes before leaving. Kind of creepy.
Interesting audience. Everybody are making hash cigarettes and weed.
Very interesting toilet with glass walls.
And here is a small souvenir from Christiania - a space cookie. It was interesting experience and not as crazy as we thought it would be. :)
And here is some weed. It was interesting to whiteness the whole process of making it.
The whole district it totally urban style.
No idea what this statue might represent.
Tobacco industry kills people sign.
You can see people getting really high here.
Main market with different stuff, crap and souvenirs.
Mural in Christiania.
The flag of Christiania is a red banner with three yellow discs representing the dots in the "i"s in "Christiania". The colours were supposedly chosen because when the original squatters took over the former military base, they reportedly found a large amount of red and yellow paint.
"You are now entering the EU" written on the exit of Christiania.
A wall around Christiania.
A unicorn statue.
Red square in Copenhagen.
The main hall. Really gorgeous.
No doors is the answer.
Very cool idea for the chairs.comments powered by Disqus
