Copenhagen is the cooler big sister in Scandinavia. And she deserves it. Not only being in the land of ”hygge”, it’s one of the most welcoming cities in the world.

Founded in the early 1100s, the city has been breaking records ever since. Today you find one of Europe’s longest pedestrianized shopping streets, Strøget and the world’s oldest Tivoli in the capital. Strolling down the streets of Copenhagen, you’ll quickly notice two things: water – it’s everywhere – you are practically always surrounded by it and the buildings – poppin’ with colors and great architecture. This is no wonder, many of the most famous buildings were built between the years 1588-1648.
