Copenhagen Overview

Copenhagen

Originally, Copenhagen was once a 10th century Viking village but has grown to become the most inhabited city in Denmark, with an urban population of well over 1.2 million. This capital city is on the east coast of Zealand, 26 miles northwest of Malmo, and 102 miles northeast of Odense. It is the governmental centre of Denmark and one of the major financial centres of northern Europe. In the 18th century, Copenhagen underwent extensive redevelopment, resulting in the prestigious district of Frederiksstaden. Rebuilding during the Danish Golden Age, in the first half of the 19th century, brought a Neoclassical appearance to the architecture of the city. There has been much investment into the institutions and infrastructure of Copenhagen since the turn of the current century and the city is ranked as the third richest city in the world, in terms of gross earnings.
