The capital, the largest city in the kingdom of Denmark, is also one of the most desirable cities in Europe. There are studies that point to Copenhagen's inhabitants as the happiest in the world. Of course the country's living conditions help, but the city - rich, lively and cosmopolitan - is also a determining factor in the well-being of citizens.

The city has grown a lot in recent decades. What used to be a capital without a big flame - the statue of the Little Mermaid, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's tale, and the Tivoli Forum park - is nowadays an important cultural center, creative, fashionable and also of course , of business. Besides being recognized as one of the best quality of life and one of the most ecological cities in the world, it is also one of the ten most expensive cities in the world. For example, recent studies show that 36% of Copenhagen's inhabitants cycle on a daily basis. It is almost the official means of transport of the city and the streets are all type of bicycles. In addition, the metro operates 24 hours a day. The city was born in the 11th century, but only became the capital of Denmark in the early fifteenth century. During the Viking period, the town was a fishing village with the name Havn (port). The growth of the port has helped the city become an important financial and commercial center. Hence the name in Danish, København, which comes from Kjøbmandehavn, which means "port of merchants".
Although crowded and noisy as any big city, Copenhagen manages to captivate the visitor because it has retained its original charm. With its pedestrian streets, beautiful squares and narrow paths, invite you to stroll through the inner city and enjoy the environment. In addition, you can also be dazzled by the canals, picturesque towers and old buildings of numerous cafes and restaurants.

The climate of Copenhagen is very variable throughout the year, a characteristic feature of the northern regions of Europe. The winter is cold, rainy and snowy. Spring is generally smooth, but with many variations, with days of sun and heat, but also of rain and cold.

This city has attractions for all tastes: parks and gardens, museums, restaurants, bars and nightclubs and concerts. Copenhagen has a hectic social life and an outdoor culture surprisingly compared to other Nordic countries.
The Danish national dish consists of the union of meatballs with cabbage in white sauce! A gastronomic tradition that is lost in time, although fishing is one of the most important activities in this country of fearless sailors.

Another common dish is the millionbøf which consists of fried beef cut into small pieces, and served over crushed potatoes. But there is still space for the goose or roast duck and for the cheeses, the world famous danish blues.
