Copenhagen is reassuringly provincial

The capital of Denmark since 1443, there’s more to Copenhagen than canals and bicycles. Though still known for its free spirit (as epitomised by autonomous Christiania) it’s also celebrated for its harbour bathing facilities, fashion weeks and Michelin-starred restaurants. Recognized for its superior quality of life and equally high living costs, Copenhagen is the perfect city for families, with a wealth of activities exclusively for children and ample green space and parks. With the Øresund Bridge placing Sweden just minutes away, Copenhagen is the very picture of a youthful, modern city.
