Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is an elegant city, rich in history and tradition. Castles and crown jewels, galleries and museums, cathedrals and canals – sightseeing in this city is fascinating. One of the city's most celebrated sights is Tivoli, a unique combination of picture-perfect gardens, lakes and more than 100,000 coloured lights.

Take a stroll down Langelinie Promenade to see the heart of Copenhagen. It runs along the water from the port, skirting the 300-year-old moated citadel near the celebrated statue of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid. The surrounding park is home to the Gefion Fountain, Copenhagen's most spectacular fountain.
The Danes are probably best known for their open-face sandwiches (smorrebrod), of which there are many tempting varieties. Typical of Scandinavia, the "cold table" buffet-style lunch is also very popular, consisting of many types of fish and seafood, particularly herring, which may be pickled, marinated or fried; a range of cold meats and pâtés; and even the odd hot dish such as meatballs. World-renowned Danish pastry is very common and oddly enough referred to as wienerbrod, or Viennese pastry.
The unit of currency in Denmark is the krone (DKK). US dollars are accepted in some of the more touristy shops, and major credit cards are also widely accepted.
