As you can see from the previous picture, last weekend I went to Copenhagen with some Italian friends, Carolina, Maurizio and Ilaria. I expected it to be extremely cold but it was not that bad for this time of the year. I mean, no snow and sunny during the day... the temperature did not go higher than 2-3 degrees though... The city was beautiful and people quite warm and welcoming. It was a nice surprise! We had quite a lot of fun at night and during the day. During the day, we did not stop walking in those 2 days, but it was well worth it! We could visit all the major places... except Carlsberg brewery... next time :)
Now some pictures so you can see what it looks like, in case you have never been there!
This is Nyhavn (New Harbour), a street full of restaurants, ships and colourful houses.
This is one of the most unique churches in the city. The way up to the top of the tower goes around the tower and outside! Quite surrealistic but nice.
And the Opera Theater:
This is one of the last hippie towns in Europe... it is called Christiania and drugs were sold here with police consent until a couple years ago.
This is Tycho Brahe's Planetarium. A beautiful modern bulding it is! Gerard, I couldn't help remembering how Tycho Brahe died... do you remember that final report for our "History of Science" course?
And finally, a typical view from Stroget, the shopping street: lovely square + church + fountain... beautiful
In short, a nice weekend break!
