Copenhagen - Capital & largest city in Denmark

Copenhagen
(København)

Wiki:
Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and its most populous city, with an urban population of 1,213,822 (as of 1 January 2012) and a metropolitan population of 1,950,522 (as of 1 January 2013). Copenhagen is situated on the eastern coast of Zealand and stretches across part of Amager. A number of bridges and tunnels connect the parts of the city together, and the cityscape is characterised by beaches and promenades.
Originally a Viking fishing village known as "Havn", in the tenth century the city of Copenhagen was officially founded and served as a harbour town. The city became the capital of Denmark in the beginning of the 15th century, while being documented as such since the 11th century. During the 17th century, under the reign of Christian IV, it became a significant regional centre. Since the turn of the millennium, Copenhagen has seen a strong urban and cultural development. This is partly due to massive investments in cultural facilities as well as infrastructure. With the completion of the transnational Øresund Bridge in 2000, Copenhagen has become increasingly integrated in the Øresund Region. Within this region, Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö are growing into a combined metropolitan area.
Copenhagen is a major regional centre of culture, media, and science, as indicated by several international surveys and rankings. Life science, information technology and shipping are important sectors, and research & development plays a major role in the city's economy. Copenhagen is among the financial centres of Northern Europe with the Copenhagen Stock Exchange and home of many companies such as Maersk, Carlsberg Group and Novo Nordisk.
A diverse infrastructure allows for a blend of bicycles, cars and public transport while the Copenhagen Metro serves the inner city centre, the S-train connects the city centre with the outer boroughs of Copenhagen. The Copenhagen Airport is largest airport in the Nordic countries, serving 23.3 million passengers in 2012.

Surburb - Frederiksberg
Now I'm taking you to my surburb, Frederiksberg.

Wiki:
Frederiksberg is an informal Danish city borough of the capital Copenhagen. Formally Frederiksberg also is a town, seat of the Frederiksberg Municipality, in the country's Region Hovedstaden (Capital City Region) with a size less than 9 km2 and a population of 100,814 in 2012. Frederiksberg is located as an enclave within the districts forming the city of Copenhagen. There is no obvious border that divides Frederiksberg from other boroughs of Copenhagen. And the town is in general considered as (an informal) part of Copenhagen. For instance Copenhagen Zoo is located at Frederiksberg, the Copenhagen Metro has several stations within Frederiksberg's formal borders (stations Forum, Frederiksberg, Fasanvej and Lindevang).

Ok...your pictures look more 'real' and less glamourous than others I've seen of this city on these forums. Looks very grey and scruffier too, but still very interesting.

Thank you Well, they look very 'real' because I have only added a very little bit of saturation, so it is almost raw footage And I suppose they look grey because it was a very grey day with many clouds, only very few holes in the clouds where the sun came out. I'll be sure to go out again soon on a sunny day with clear sky to give some less grey footage
