Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, was originally a fishing village. The city is known for its vast canal systems, and has a strong reputation for its cycling culture, and a comfortable and happy lifestyle. The Danish concept of “hygge”, meaning to be cozy, relaxed and feeling joy for life, is applicable regardless of the weather because there is always something to bring a little hygge to your life in Copenhagen. And with a vast expat community, this location is equally attractive to locals or transplants.
The city is linked to Malmo, Sweden by the famous Oresund Bridge, and is considered a hub for travel throughout Europe and Scandinavia, either by car or with various train, boat, or quick flight options. The historic city center includes Frederiksstaden, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace, as well as many other Renaissance castles and architectural sights to enjoy. Tivoli Gardens and the Nyhavn Canal are popular places to visit, but even just a walk through the charming cobblestone streets lined with colorful houses along the canals can offer a lovely way to spend the day.
Food, drink, art, and architecture are mainstays of Copenhagen, and contribute to its reputation for being such a positive place to visit and live. And during the winter, the holiday markets are a popular place to visit to enjoy the culture and support local vendors.
