Flashback: A day in Copenhagen, Denmark May 2012

Last May 2012, my family and I went on a Baltic cruise (check out my St. Petersburg post) – the port was located in Copenhagen, Denmark.  We arrived in Copenhagen at 10:00 a.m. and checked in to our hotel, however our cruise wasn’t until the next day.  So what did we do for 1 day in Copenhagen?

We decided to take a boat tour to see the city – by the way, we stayed at the Copenhagen Hilton Hotel which was about 10 minutes walk to get to the city center.  The boat tour lasted about less than 1 hour but it was a good way to see the city monuments.

Above: Christianborg Palace – the Danish parliament home, supreme court, reception area for the Queen Margethe II and office of the prime minister.  According to Wikipedia, this is the only building in the world that houses all three branches of the government.  The pointy tower is called the ‘twisted spire of dragons’ it was a former old stock exchange.

Above:  The Little Mermaid of Denmark – our taxi driver told us that ‘the Little Mermaid’ is the most important statue in all of Denmark’, it is a must visit tourist spot.

Above:  Me (somewhere in the main central) checking out the unique pond-like architecture.

After the boat tour, we went to the main city center to get snacks – we ended going to one of the hotdog stands.  And walked around and bought some souvenirs.  Hope you enjoyed the small flashback post for Copenhagen, Denmark.
