Copenhagen, Denmark

As if leaping from the pages of the fairytale book about the Snow Queen, dreamy Copenhagen is a real tidbit for travelers from all around the globe. Recently, the Danish people were recognized as the happiest nation in the world, and one of the reasons for that is certainly the indisputable beauty of their capital. Copenhagen is definitely the spot for a saturated cultural and artistic experience. Probably the most famous Copenhagen attraction is the colorful waterfront district of Nyhavn which historically served as a gateway from the sea to the inner city, nowadays it provides stunning photo opportunities with typically Danish tiny houses and serene boats peacefully waggling in the canal. Choosing cycling as your way to explore marvelous Copenhagen is a perfect way to understand the local lifestyle and discover the major landmarks like the Town Hall Square, the Christiansborg Palace, the Old Danish Stock Exchange, and the symbol of Copenhagen, the statue of the Little Mermaid....
