Trip to Copenhagen – Part Two…um, Copenhagen!! : P

After our adventure in Malmo, we set out for Copenhagen the next day bright and early! We caught the train across the Oresund bridge at around ten and it only took about 30 minutes to get to the central station in Copenhagen!

We booked the Saga hotel for our stay in Copenhagen and found it so easily! It was only five minutes from the station. Funny enough, the rest of our friends were staying next door to us!

We all chatted for a bit before heading out for lunch. It was another asian restaurant haha – Wagamama! So good.

It was kind of a drizzly day so Vroni, Harry and I decided to go to the aquarium! It was really neat. Vroni and I were so excited because we hadn’t been to a aquarium before.

A bit rainy…

We attempted to see the little mermaid statue but it was too far, and we we were so cold and wet! We decided to go back to the hotel and meet up with the rest of our friends. That night we went out for Sushi because our friend Rachel has a friend who works at this fancy Sushi restaurant. It was really delicious! Sorry no pics for this. : (

The next day we had breakfast and headed out to see the city! It was a beautiful day with not a drop of rain. We were really lucky! Me, Vroni and Harry decided to again separate from the rest of the gang because we wanted to see different things.

After Ny Havn, we walked on the pier and saw a performing arts centre.

We wanted to go to the changing of the guard at noon, so we waited around for a bit. Sat inside a neat church and had some Fika!

After posing with Ariel we walked to Rosenborg castle again and continued through the main shopping street on our way to Christiania!

Stroget! Longest pedestrian shopping area in Europe!

After doing some shopping we found our way to Christiania! Courtesy of wikipedia, Christiania  is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (84 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in Copenhagen . Civic authorities in Copenhagen regard Christiania as a large commune but the area has a unique status in that it is regulated by a special law, the Christiania Law of 1989 which transfers parts of the supervision of the area from the  municipality of Copenhagen  to the state. It was closed by residents in April 2011, whilst discussions continued with the Danish government as to its future, but is now open again.

Christiania has been a source of controversy since its creation in a squatted military area in 1971. Its cannabis  trade was tolerated by authorities until 2004. Since then, measures for normalising the legal status of the community have led to conflicts, police raids and negotiations which are ongoing.

Among many Christiania residents, the community is known as staden (‘the town’), short forfristaden (‘the freetown’).

You are not allowed to take pictures or videos in Christiania or yell or run (as it causes panic). So I do not have any photos of this experience. But it was definitely the most unique place I’ve ever seen. There were so many people there too! Even parents with small children!

After christiania we went back to the hotel and met up with our friends. We decided to go to a authentic Danish restaurant for supper. Vroni, Harry and I were not that hungry though because we had had a big lunch before going to Christiania. But I still ordered tomato soup which was delicious.

After supper we went back to the hotel and rested for the night. The next day we decided to take the journey to Helsingor before heading back to Jonkoping! This post will be added soon! Stay tuned. Thanks for reading!
