If your from Sweden, like me, chances are you have spent quite a few weekends in Copenhagen. This vibrant, beautiful, european city forms as a sort of passage between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe, making it a very popular destination. This particular time, I had about 8 hours to spend between my train from Stockholm and my flight to London and having arrived rather early I headed straight to the first bakery I could find. Breakfast time! In Denmark (and probably other countries too) they have this one pastry that is so delicious that I can't even find the words to describe it. It's a sort of flat, crunchy croissant but filled with butter, cinnamon and to top it all, a huge dollop of icing or melted chocolate in the middle. Obviously I had two.
Stroget is the main shopping road of copenhagen, and a wonderful street even if you just want to take a walk or sit at a cafe. I easily let a few hours pass me by here everytime I visit. Don't miss stopping by Illums department store for a look at the famous danish interior design.
For me there is only one place to have dinner (at least if you only have one day to spend) and that is Nyhavn. I have met a few people who have been to Copenhagen but compleatly missed this gem in the midst of the city. Its a little port with allt the resturants overlooking the water and the boats about half an hour's walk from the central station, a little pricey, but definitly worth it.
