A danish+russian fairy tale

Was disappointed to discover Tivoli closed during the time I was in Copenhagen. Luckily, it was open during our train transit in Copenhagen to Stockholm. We had initially planned to visit Malmo and Lund. Changed our minds and visited Tivoli (coincidentally it was closed when my brother visited Copenhagen earlier).

Felt a tint of happiness during this press about Tivoli 🙂 Theme parks always have this magical effect on beings. And I am now pressing about one of the most famous ones in Scandinavia!

It was funny how I was peeping into Tivoli whenever I passed by. I thought I would not be able to step into this wonderland 😦???????????????????????????????

Until I figured out from the advertisements that the park was preparing for Christmas and was to re-open soon (maybe I could visit it during my transit!) ???????????????????????????????

And I did! Tivoli was located opposite the Copenhagen Central train station which made it really easy for us to pop by. The train system in Copenhagen is great –  it was really easy to get from the airport to the train station (took probably less than 30 minutes). So here I was in Tivoli, basking in the Christmasy theme park 🙂 Looking happy (and a bit sleepy though – had to wake at 4am that morning to catch the flight from Iceland to Copenhagen) 😛
???????????????????????????????

Walking in the streets of Tivoli. Mostly women, children and elderly spotted. Kind of peaceful. I imagine it will be prettier after sunset when the streets start to light up.

Right in the centre of Copenhagen is Tivoli. The surroundings added to the charms of the theme park.
