Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden

I visited Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden in March, 2012 and want to share some pictures and impressions. From the happiest and the second happiest countries in the world.

Copenhagen, Denmark

It is funny that when I checked the most popular Google query with “Copenhagen” word was “where is Copenhagen” and the most popular query with word “Malmö” was “where is Malmö”. I am sure that you, unlike those guys, have no doubts about the actual location of Copenhagen. So, I will skip the introductory part about Denmark and Scandinavia. Most likely, you can even find Malmö on a map in under 10 seconds. But nevertheless I will tell you that it is only half an hour away from Copenhagen. So, if you have some time left, you might consider taking Copenhagen to Malmo train.

It is certainly not a travel guide, more of a collection of pictures with short comments. But I still want to provide some value and share several useful links for those who are going there. I think you might want to print these.

As I have limited time, I will keep the descriptions short and focus on pictures instead. All of them were taken on my trip to Denmark in March, 2012. Enjoy!

I believe that bicycle lanes should be adapted by all the cities!

What I liked about Copenhagen is that it remains just as awesome when you leave the city center. In some way it even gets better.

We wanted to try some Danish cheese but could not find a proper shop. Finally, bought some at the airport. Too bad, one of them turned out to be from Ireland… But this one was actually tastier.

Unfortunately, Freetown Christiania was a disappointment. Instead of free and happy people, we saw a crowd of mostly unappealing people.

Overall, Copenhagen is very nice, cozy and comfortable. I think it is also quite a good option for expatriates. Everybody speaks English.

I would certainly recommend renting a bike to experience he city.  Malmö, Sweden

 

Fog that day made the place look surreal.

Overall, Malmo resembled Copenhagen to a certain degree. Maybe all Scandinavian cities share something in their DNA?
