About Copenhagen

Copenhagen, or København as it is known in Danish, is Denmark's largest and capital city. It's located beside the sea, in the Zealand Island area of Denmark. Around 1.7 million people currently live in the Greater Copenhagen Area.

Founded in 1167 by Bishop Absolon, there is evidence of settlers in the Copenhagen area dating back as far as 6,000 years ago. From the Vikings to the Royal Family of the present day, this city has a long and rich history.

The city is made up of many different and distinct neighbourhoods, including the city centre, Vesterbro, Nørrebro, Østerbro, and Christianshavn. These area come together to form Copenhagen, which boasts a mix of medieval splendour and contemporary wonders.

Copenhagen is connected to Malmö in Sweden by means of the Øresund Bridge. This bridge and tunnel carries cars and trains across the Øresund strait, linking the two cities.
