Videogallery: Denmark, Copenhagen II - Parks, Cemeteries, and Andersen
Denmark, Copenhagen II - Parks, Cemeteries, and Andersen
heading (paragraph): Towns
Copenhagen is more than just a city of frequen concerts, social events, museums and sights. You can rest in vast green spaces there. In the beginning you may be surprised that in such parks tomb stones are frequent. But don’t be worried – there are several parks/cemeteries in Copenhagen. Our video takes you to one such park which also the place of final rest of the writer Hans Christian Andersen. You will like it. Trust us.
The capital of Denmark truly amazed me. Nordic history, interesting architecture everywhere, lots of greenery, bicyclists, cool people, great food and coffee. It is one of those cities which should serve as an example. Danes are the most happy nation in the world. In Copenhagen, I realized why it is so.
Flowers, blossoming trees, benches, small lanterns, puffy bears, and birds singing. People walk slowly along gravel paths. You can see children, grandpas, grandmas – it doesn’t matter. All are enjoying this calm place. Were there not tombs with Danish names I wouldn’t even notice that I am at a large cemetery. It rather seems the tombs were placed there accidentally.
Beautiful moments pass by quickly. Now we are in the last place of our Scandinavian tour. The Danish capital is situated on the eastern coast of Sjælland island and partly it lays on Amager island. Copenhagen is a beautiful, modern city. People love it and return back gladly.
