The Zealand/Copenhagen region

Copenhagen (Kobenhavn) lies on Zealand, the largest of the Danish islands. It is one of the most appealing of capitals and seaports in Europe, with quays and canals penetrating the centre. Copenhagen has a well-preserved old quarter called the Inner Town, animated by a Renaissance spirit with a northern touch. Twisted spires and copper spires shape the skyline. There are narrow, winding streets and ancient, timbered houses. This Inner Town is no museum, but the living city centre, with the main shops, the university of Copenhagen ,the Parliament, and a sparkling Latin Quarter. The Inner town located in the triangle of the streets Vester Voldgade Nørre Volgade and Gammel strand up to the Kongens Nytorv square, from there you can visit the famous Nyhavn, one of the main attractions of the city, Nyhavn is picturesque quarter of bars and restaurants in a small quay lined by old wooden houses, further on the Marble Church, the Palace and the Port is just a few minutes walk. In Kongens Nytorv you will find the famous Hotel d'Angleterre ,the Opera House and the famous department store Magazin du Nord. Strøget is the main axis between the Inner Town and the principal shopping street of Copenhagen. All this and the rest of the city is fused by a rich and good-tempered restaurant and boulevard life. In Amagerstorv you will find the famous design shop Illums Bolighus while you can taste famous Danish pastry and coffee at Cafe Europa and Cafe Norden. Around the area of the University there are many restaurants that you can eat cheap as much as you want during the buffet time with one set price. Whilst in Copenhagen you have a good chance to visit Malmo in Sweden using the train or car. The Oresund bridge, a masterpiece of engineering connects since 2000 Copenhagen with Sweden.

The statue of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid near the harbour is probably the most famous landmark of Copenhagen. Tivoli, the amusement park, is another of the main attractions in Copenhagen, Tivoli contains restaurants, cafes, and a concert hall. The Copenhagen Zoo, in Frederiksberg, is the biggest in Scandinavia and is worth visiting. Among the better known old buildings are the rococo Amalienborg Royal Palace, the baroque Academy of Fine Arts (in Charlottenborg), and the Renaissance building of the former Stock Exchange . Good examples of modern buildings are the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, the State Radio House, the Grundtvig Church, the Fisketorvet shopping Center and the town halls of the boroughs of Frederiksberg and Holte. Copenhagen Town Hall is a magnificent reproduction of medieval civic architecture built in the 1890's.

An unrivalled collection of neoclassical sculpture is to be seen in the museum devoted to the works of the 19th century Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen. Modern Danish and other Scandinavian art is on exhibition at the Glyptoteket. The National Museum is particularly strong in old Norse collections and Arctic ethnography.

Danish design is a byword in contemporary applied art, and its products are the characteristic wares of Copenhagen shops. The Danes specialize in furniture, their designers are brilliant and their cabinet-makers both skilled and creative. Other Danish products in the best contemporary style are ceramics, stainless steel, and silverware.

Around Copenhagen there is some pretty country. The Deer Park at Klarnpenborg and the Rude Forest at Holtc are worth visiting. So, too, are the resorts along the Sound, particularly Vedbaek and Rungsted, with heir little yachting harbours.

Downtown Copenhagen

Vesterbro was originally the name of the paved country road that led into the city center from the west. Few country roads in those days were paved, but the amount of traffic into the capital necessitated it.

Until 1853 after the cholera epidemic that had hit Copenhagen, there had been a "no build" zone outside Copenhagen's old part of town, the part now known as the Inner City or Indre By. This Demarcation Line (Demarkationslinien) indicated an area beyond the city's century's old defense wall system where Copenhagen's defense forces could strike the enemy unhindered.

Until then there was little development outside the center of the city, except with special permission. Even though much of the area was used as grazing land, by the 1780s there were approx. 1,000 inhabitants of the area, as well as a number of commercial enterprises (lumberyards, tobacco farm, several industrial buildings), and the house of the Royal Copenhagen Shooting Society and Danish Brotherhood (''Det kongelige kjøbenhavnske Skydeselskab og danske Broderskabs''). The society received permission to build outside the old city limits in the 1750s, and the building has housed the Copenhagen City Museum since 1956.

With the abolishment of the demarcation line in 1853, the dismantling of the old fortifications that ringed the center of town in the late 1860s, and the removal of the old entrance gates to the city in 1856, the population quickly spread out to the “as yet” undeveloped areas outside the center. This movement came first to the inner ring of areas outside the center: the Indre Østerbro ("Inner Østerbro"), the Indre Nørrebro ("Inner Nørrebro"), Vesterbro, and Frederiksberg.

At that time the name Vesterbro began being used for the entire area around the street named Vesterbro, and late in the 1800s the name of the street itself was changed to Vesterbrogade ("Vesterbro Street").
