COPENHAGEN 2014 – Views from a church, National museum, Old Town and more

I visited Copenhagen the week before the Eurovision contest. We climbed to the top of the twisting church Vor Frelsers Kirke, Christianshavn, Strøget pedestrian street and the Old Town, visited the National Museum for the first time, vistied a charming book café, a restaurant, a markethall and spot a car caravan with some important Japanese people twice! Copenhagen is just about 40 minutes by train from Malmö where I live, across the Öresund bridge. Enjoy!

OLD TOWN, CENTRAL STATION, RÅDHUSPLADSEN AND STRØGET:




















The beginning of Strøget at Rådhuspladsen.

Some important Japanese person was escorted from Christiansborg by this police caravan followed by black luxury cars and vans. Don't know who, probably the ambassador.

Interesting photos. I like the large, open pedestrian areas, squares and streets - quite different from most of the US.

The views from Vor Frelsers Kirke:

































It gets more and more narrow towards the top! The stairs are really steep and the tower is also swaying so you'd better don't suffer from claustrophobia or be afraid of heights to visit the church tower!
