Time for another part - this time from Strøget in the Old Town

Strøget is the overall name for the longest and largest pedestrial shopping area in Europe

Here you can find just about everything you would want, only real problems is the crowds as the streets tends to be really crowded and move way longer than what I'm confortable with..
This walk gonna cover the main part, but if you find yourself in the area don't miss the cute sidstreets..
[IMG]http://i44.************/11jnl9s.jpg[/IMG]

We start of at the City Hall Square and move North to the Kings Square.. the entrence..

wow amazing pictures, that people take the sun, but is cold, at least for me, because I live in the thermometer marking 45 degrees, 18-20 degrees is then to use some more clothes.

it is always gratifying to see people using the urban space.

saludos

Ever ventured into Christiania to make a couple of pics over there? I was there last week to take a look, what a mess. It looked like a parody of the sixties.

Copenhaguen really is as beautyful as in the pictures....I couldnt been in the Christiania district but some other travellers told me it worths a visit!!..he also told me that no cameras are allowed in Christiania (maybe thats the reason why no pics were already posted)...

Im gonna be honest, when my friends told me we were going to Scandinavia and our first stop was Copenhaguen (we were in Berlin) I thought ok...lets see that lil mermaid and then lets go to stokholm.....stupid me....Copenhaguen was the best city of the trip!! ...really a surprise!

I've been there a couple times and have been disgusted by it every single time..

It's one of several projects around the Kingdom where alternative living was accepted by the government ( despite in this case it was a military area illegally occupied ) - however in every single case it ends up being unajusted people settleling there bringing both drugs, alcohol misuse and other criminal behavior with them, pretty much ruining the places..

In theory I love the idea of building your own home, growing your own crops and pretty much live closer to how humans are supposed to live - sadly however I have not seen it work in reality, neither here nor elsewhere, so I see it as a romantic dream that doesn't go well with reality..

In Christiania's case it ended up being a gathering place for unemployed, early retired, drug users and.. well worse.. and after many years of government acceptance they final got enough a few years ago and the place will slowly be changed to a normal residential area with a few alternative living options.. something that can't go fast enough if you ask me!

Didn't want to stress the negative. On the other side of the road I was very lucky to walk past a school which had all kind of festivities because the pupils just made their graduation. There was a lot of sound in the city afterwards. I already wondered the days before why every youngster was wearing those silly-looking white hats. Later on, I wished we had a similar tradition in the Netherlands.

I've heard a lot of people rank Copenhagen as their favourite stop in visiting Scandinavian countries. I'd love to visit it.... especially after Freki's beautiful photos!

A cool place to visit, perhaps. But when you have to live with it and its "consequences" every day, you sometimes end up feeling just slightly different about it.
