As if it is a melting pot in which museums, palaces, distinctive designs, high fashion and many Michelin-starred restaurants fuse, in parallel with a long calendar of events, cultural festivals and concerts.
However, we begin our journey north, by stopping at that special mood. Do you know that Copenhagen has been chosen many times the most joyful city? A strange classification.

That classification is full of subjectivity, as it extends to this positive mood, which many people, residents and tourists, unanimously agree upon.

Currently, the remains of the castle, below the palace, attract many tourists who are interested in the historical aspects. In this dark place, one can move into the mysterious past.
