This place, the capital of Denmark, has many different artefacts and places to see. Its name comes from this place because it is a port city. The word Koben, which is referred to as “Kobenhavn” in Danish, refers to merchants, while the word havn refers to the port. So where to go in Copenhagen? What’s the answer to the question? Let’s take a look at some places.

Tivoli Gardens

One of the most popular amusement parks in the world is Tivoli Park. Tivoli, the second oldest amusement park in the world, was opened to the public in 1843.

  It is possible to come and spend time in this park, which contains entertainment machines, cafes, restaurants, gardens and many other event areas. So nature and fun.. These two elements are together in this park.

Amelien Palace

Yep. Another palace. Looks like we’re going to see a lot of Palace on this trip, and that’s normal. Because they are an undeniable part of the historical process, and one of them is the Amelien Palace or Amelienborg.

The Amelien Palace was built in the 17th century for the purpose of remaining the first of the four noble families, but after a fire disaster in the 18th century, the palace was acquired by the dynasty. Meanwhile, the burning Palace is Christiansborg Palace.

The royal family repaired these places that were damaged in the fire and moved there. So you see, this palace is home to the royal family.

Rosenborg Castle

This is a country house. Yeah, you didn’t hear wrong.Rosenborg Castle is actually a country house. At least it was first built this way with this purpose. However, as a result of many expansions, this castle, which had a Dutch Renaissance style, was restored to its present appearance by the first quarter of the 17th century.

Rosenborg Palace, which was used as a royal residence until the beginning of the 18th century, also has the oldest royal garden in the country. In Rosenborg Castle, which was opened to the public in the 19th century, there is also a museum displaying the royal collections.

Rundetaarn

It was built for use as an observatory during the Christian 4th period of Denmark. This cylindrical tower, which has a remarkable view, was used as an observatory for a while, and as a result of the effects of urbanization and increased light pollution, the observatory was moved from here to another location and this structure was used for other purposes. The construction of this tower, now used for segiler and other purposes, began in 1637 and was completed exactly 20 years later in 1657.

Stroget Street

Stroget Street, one of the longest streets in Europe, is an attraction. This place, which is effective in the flow of life in Copenhagen, is waiting for tourists who want to shop. While you’re walking down the street, you also get the opportunity to observe the colorful architecture of the city.

Active since the 18th century, this street was known by the name Ruthen until the late 1800s. An arrangement made in the 60s halted entry of cars, making it a place where only pedestrian and cyclist visitors could enter.
