Now an art center in what was once St. Nikolaj, Copenhagen’s third oldest church and one of the city’s tallest. A bit unnerving when you first walk in.... stark white throughout. It obviously does not serve its original mission and does not do justice to...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
