Copenhagen is at the cross-roads between Continental Europe and Scandinavia and the Baltic area. The sea and waterfront dominate the city that has kept an old-world charm. The city’s old streets and architecture blends in with modern design symbolising its rapid growth. The newly inaugurated Royal Opera offers a magnificent contemporary perspective of Denmark.
The modest size of the city is a great advantage for visitors. The best sights are within the city centre which has a bustling pedestrian shopping area called Strøget. Most roads have a bike lane, and compared with other European cities there is little traffic.
