Cool Copenhagen

(Post with six pictures so allow some time for page to load. A picture follows its description. Click on the picture to see an enlarged version)

Copenhagen, the capital and the largest city of Denmark is undoubtedly one of the coolest cities of the world. It is an environment friendly and often appears in the list of cities with the best quality of life in the world.

While taking pictures in Copenhagen, it is hard to decide what not to click. Despite capturing water view at Nyhaven, traditional European architectures, modern buildings, harbor, boats, water and the sight from the ship; pictures don’t justify the beauty of the city.

A hotel housed in a traditional European architecture:


The Royal Palace


The longest pedestrian shopping street Stroget. See the crowd on a Sunday even though not all shops open for business.


Does the following picture need an explanation?


See the modern architecture and water around the Opera House.


View from the harbor area in the evening. Notice the boats and houses close to water if you zoom.


Visit to Copenhagen was worth and enjoyed every moment of it, even watching the city from a distance.

What do you think about Copenhagen after seeing these pictures?

Sunil Deepak said...

Beautiful images A. Congrats.

I had been to Copenhagen some 15-16 years ago, when I had no interest in photography and I spent all my time in a meeting room, never really seeing the city. After looking at your pictures, I feel sorry for having been so stupid! :)

shuchita said...

Amrit said...

@Alka, @Rama, @Kavita, @Ashwini, @Insignia, @Harish, @Chitra, @Kiran, @Ramesh, @Ria, @Rajesh

Thanks a million. Always like positive comments.


Try to go if you can.


I wish they pay but I don’t think so. But thanks for the compliment.


Try to read my next posts. You will be pleasantly surprised. Thanks.


Thanks. I think it is more beautiful than what the pictures show.

Thanks. Thanks. I just wrote short description.

Thanks. I am not sure about corruption. May be you are right. I did not stay long enough to comment or get the first hand experience.

I wish I had 4 days. I was there just for one day.

Yes. Sometimes we think later what we missed. It has happened to me too.

I am sure you will find a way to make a trip there.

No late or early for friends. Take your time. Yes, NRIGirl guessed it before. Nice to know about your cousin. So if I got it right you dad has been to Copenhagen and you asked him the questions. Oh my god. That means my quizzes are not so bad. Wait for my next quiz, I will make is slightly difficult.
