Copenhagen is quite old. Below is some history and interesting facts. The first settlement occurred over 1,000 years ago. It wasn’t until 1443 that it became the capital of Denmark though. Copenhagen actually replaced Roskilde. I’m sure many of you have heard of Roskilde and the festival that takes place there.
The Copenhagen university was founded in 1479. All the “must” see buildings were built 1588-1648 during King Christian IV reign, such as:
Denmark and Copenhagen have been invaded by the Swedes and the English (and others).
Tivoli was founded in 1843. Copenhagen is famous for so many things: bicycling, the little mermaid of course, their sausages, Strøget, the Opera and many more things.
It’s a city well worth visiting if you ever get the chance! I recommend.
