Denmark, although small in size, definitely leaves a huge trademark when defining Scandinavia. In fact, Copenhagen rivals the swedish capital to the point where it could claim its nickname.

Copenhagen17 May 2006

Capital of Denmark, it has an impressive number of major castles in its own core of the city. The original designation for the city, from which the contemporary Danish name is derived, was Køpmannæhafn, that's "merchants' harbor". The English name for the city is derived from its Low German name, Kopenhagen. The element hafnium is the city's Latin name, Hafnia.

Spent a whole day in the city, walking as much as we could, visiting all there was to visit in the center of the town. After passing by museums and castles, sipping coffee by the Nyhavn canal and running into a large demonstration which brought most of the capital's citizens out on the streets, we end up at the Tivoli Gardens for a fun time till late in the evening.

In 2008, the magazine Monocle listed Copenhagen first in their Top 20 Most Livable Cities Chart, and gave the city the special award as "Best Design City".
