I think they stay simply to be able to ad a nation to their "global list" - something I'd probable do too - and while US fast food isn't the Danes favorite we do have a few of most chains scattered around the nation, usually in tourist zones or along the freeways that connects continental Europe with the Scandinavian countries and Finland..


Never personally tried Dominos - I'm not keen about the US pizza styles - I prefere the thin Italian or Middle Eastern ones..
Ah, I see. What about Burger King or KFC? Those two dumps seem to be everywhere!

Dominos is alright. Its not real high quality, but its good if you are throwing a part or watching a game. I think its better than Pizza Hut or other pizza chains. People complain about it being a bit too "doughy".

It's the same, but they are more present that Dominos..

There's a couple franchises in tourist areas and near bars, clubs and pubs - but other than that and near freeways you don't see many..

It's usually a place you go at 5am after a night of drinking..

Nice that you captured the Hanukkah decorations there. Everywhere I see them I feel like at home.

I'm having a hard time finding pics of charedim in Denmark. Are there any in Copenhagen?

I don't know what that is, so hard for me to say..

By Googling it I got the understanding that it's Othodox Jews?

In that case visually identifiable jews are a rare sight in Copenhagen ( and the Nordics in general ) - I'm not sure exactly why that is, but my guess would be that just like everyone else is very relaxed when it comes to religion so would they be so my guess is that whom may have been left here after WW2 have either left for Israel or become relaxed about it and stayed

People don't wear religious clothing here, I've never seen a nun here f.ex and other than the muslim vail and the male muslim clothing seen on fridays after prayer you rarely see anything..

It's not that it isn't tollerated, it's more a question of people not being religious.. so there's no pressure to show you belong to a group..

I'm kinda curious as you seem to have a liking of Scaninavian cities - have you ever been up here and if yes what did you think of it?

Around 2 million. 3,6 million including Malmö + surroundings.


From a thread I made over at SSP

MALMÖ

Sweden's third largest municipal is also the most dense city in Sweden. Almost half of the urban area's population lives in the city core/centre, and the rest lives in large scale housing projects built in the 60-70s or detached houses. About half of the city's housing was built during Sweden's "glory days" between 1955-75, during the so called "Million Programme".

The inner city has a density of 10.495 p/km2 (~27.200 p/sqm) while the urban area as a whole has 3.596 p/km2 (9.313 p/sqm).


It forms with Copenhagen the population epicentre of the otherwise sparsely populated Scandinavia.

Malmö (background) is a 15 minute car trip from Copenhagen.

The two cities forms one of the largest metropolitan areas in Northern Europe (S:t Petersburg and Hamburg are larger) - by far the largest in the Nordics.

The Old Town is known for its monumental squares (Grand Sq. in the center of the photo) and busy pedestrianized streets.

Downtown East Side:

Taken by me


The city is determined to keep its compact size, and has put heavy restrictions on further expansion of the urban area while the city is projected to grow by 45% the next 20 years. Old industrial areas (North Sorgenfri in the foreground) will be redeveloped into dense inner city:


Malmö Stad


While having a large historical core, the city has lately become known for its modern waterfront...

The peninsula where Turning Torso is located is under heavy development. Today it looks like this:

Tomorrow it will look like this:

The modern waterfront areas were all home to industries in the past. Malmö was the earliest industrialized city in the Nordics.

Parts of the harbour areas are still in use, here for imported Toyotas;

Large parts of the city center are a big construction site:

Due to the geography (Scania is completely flat), the city proper is compact and doesn't sprawl like Stockholm. The suburbs and satellites are separated from the city by farmland.

Skanör-Falsterbro - with some of the best beaches in Europe.

Lund is the closest "big" (100.000+) satellite city of Malmö (about 15km). There should be aerial pics of it but I haven't been able to find any good ones just yet.

Btw, I love Basel!

Doesn`t matter, but would be nice to see something of Lund.
Was in August in Copenhagen and Lund for a weekly trip, and btw. älskar Sydsverige (Skåne, Småland) och Danmark!

Regarding the inner city, there's currently only buses, but 54 km of light rail is being planned as we speak. The regional- and commuter rail transit is quite developed though.
