Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital and originally a fishing village, is characterized by its canals, cycling culture, and happy people. It is linked to Malmo in southern Sweden by the famous Öresund Bridge. Copenhagen's city's historic center contains Frederiksstaden, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace. Located ten minutes north of Copenhagen is Dyrehavsbakken (or "Bakken" for short), the world’s oldest amusement park, dating back to 1583. The rich culture is home to the University of Copenhagen, brewery museums, the world's longest pedestrian-only shopping avenues, Tivoli Gardens amusement park, and much more.
