Summer Fun
Get Lost in Copenhagen

Altogether . . . An Altogether . . . A Most Remarkable. . .Place!

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. . .

Did you know that Copenhagen is one of the world's most environmentally friendly cities?

Copenhagen has enchanted me for most of my life, as has all of Scandinavia. The golden steeple is spectacular, but the canals and waterways create a beautiful, and calming, feeling in a lovely city.

Chiko

Oh, Kym.
You did a wonderful job with your camera.
Make me want to take photo lessens.

Patty

You've rekindled the "where do we want to go first" conversation in our house. (That's for the big I'm not paying tuition any longer trip!) Thank-you!!

Rachel

Beautiful as in my memory. I spent a week there ages ago. Such a beautiful city and such nice people.

Carole

It looks just the way I thought it would - charming and idyllic and oh-so-lovely.

kmkat

Okay, now you got me. I want to visit Copenhagen. And any other city -- except perhaps Venice -- that has canals. Lovely!

Marilyn

Such peaceful and beautiful pictures! Were you able to go back and climb the spiral staircase?? :)

Cookie

Never saw the movie, but I love seeing your photos!

Vicki
