Do you remember this movie?
Another of my childhood favorites, for sure. I've been enchanted with thoughts of Copenhagen since I was a little girl . . . as introduced to me by Danny Kaye.
The final port of our Scandinavian cruise . . . was Copenhagen.
We landed in the evening. Just in time. . . for a quick canal trip!
(I've decided that the best way to see a city. . . is from the water!)
The sun was already setting as we headed out in our little tour boat, but it takes a very long time for the sun to set at this time of year in Denmark, so we were able to enjoy a delightful introduction to the city.
There are so many unique structures in the Copenhagen skyline. The spiral steeple of the Var Fresler Kirke, for example -- with spiral stairs climbing up the outside of the steeple.
And the dome of the beautiful Amalienborg Palace. . .
Or the modern and absolutely lovely Copenhagen Opera House.
We toured past the International Sand Sculpture Festival. . .
which was Most Awesome . . . but so hard to photograph from a moving boat!
It was peaceful and welcoming . . .
to be in among the boats along the canals of Copenhagen.
And, especially, when we spied the swans!
Which, of course, got me singing . . . there once was an Ugly Duckling. . .
What a lovely introduction. . .
to an altogether. . . an altogether. . . most remarkable city!
Did you know that Copenhagen is one of the world's most environmentally friendly cities?
We saw evidence of this everywhere!
