Very nice pictures indeed!

But if Copenhagen is a metropolis than I am an airplane. Copenhagen is a very nice city, but not comparable true metropolises.

Wikipedias definition of a metropolis:
Quote:
A metropolis (in Greek metera = mother and polis = city/town) is a major city, in most cases with a population of at least one million inside its urban area, or at least, over half million inhabitants in the city proper[1] [2]. It must be regarded as a significant economical, political and cultural center for some country or region, and is usually an important hub for international connections and communications. The plural of the word is metropoleis or metropolises.
In other words Nemo is an airplane

Copenhagen city proper has about 595.000 ( incl. Frederiksberg ) and 1.8 mil+ in the metro...

It's the capital of Denmark, it houses the Danish Parliament and several UN institutions ( the largest being the entire Supply Division for Unicef ) it has Scandinavia's largest airport ( about 20% of users are btw Swedes ) and is home to many Scandinavian as well as international companies HQ's

It's not Tokyo - but it does qualify for a metrolpolis!

Absolutely a very beautiful city indeed, I won't argue that. I just pity the fact that the city seems to stick to rather conservative lowrise new architecture; reliable but not shocking.

Anyway, great pics! Although i must say there is something that makes the TT look weird.
maybe because you're Finnish People from Northern Sweden and people with a more northern kind of accent have harder to understand Danish than the Swedes in southern Sweden, and vice versa

My turn to post a few shots, even though most of you probably already have seen'em

I really like the look of Copenhagen, but I seriously believe that the tallest structures in a city shouldn't be a pile of chimney stacks

I agree - much of the industrial parts have gone over the last coupel of decades as the industrial habour was moved ( and divede ) to other more strategicly located cities around the country...

And with the Great Belt bridge linking Funen to Zealand most freigtrail use have stopped opening up new centrally located area for construction..

As the city de-industrialise I really hope to see those chimneysm gone too ( many have been torn down in my lifetime btw ) and a new zone full of 20-120 floor towers take their place

Time for a small update from Copenhagen...

The first pictures are from Flintholm station - a S-Train and Metro station as well as a bus hub located in the western part of the city..
The last ones are from the Ørestad Buisness District ( 98% under construction )

I hope you enjoy
