It’s raining in Singapore today as I begin my first press on Copenhagen. Kind of deja vu – the weather was also pretty gloomy when I was there.
As I looked through the photos, realised I covered so much in Copenhagen on my first day (second day really – arrived late by train from Stockholm). It’s Saturday and I don’t want to bore you too much with a long press. So here’s part of the journey, the rest to be shared over the weekend. A few more days maybe, as I have plans this weekend!
Copenhagen is so fairytale-like. The magic applies to the train station too. This is Kobenhavn, the main station.
Must-eat in Copenhagen. 🙂 Pastry at Andersen’s cafe opposite the train station.
Tivoli. It was closed during the 5 days I was in town. But glad I managed to visit the famous theme park after my return from Reykjavik to Stockholm via Copenhagen. Will press about it later…
The Town hall. Spotted many bicycles on Copenhagen roads.
More bicycles! And another Tivoli entrance.
H.C. Andersens, the man who planted the fairy tales of living happily ever after in your head 🙂
And the street named after him.
Another Tivoli entrance. Fun can be very accessible! 😛
Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is amazing! Was quite blown away by its huge collection of art across so many genres. A bit frustrated that I could not see everything though. Such is travel. Sometimes you just have to touch and go.
A sight I have grown accustomed to in Scandinavia. Ship and dock. Spotted on the way to Christiansborg Palace.
First glimpse of Christiansborg Palace.
Interesting how the facades of many castles in Copenhagen and the greater Copenhagen were quite run-down compared to the interiors which were in better shape.
Will press about the interiors of Christiansborg Palace later. Have a fairytale weekend!
