Short trip to Copenhagen - City of the Little Mermaid

The city is considered one of the cities with the highest quality of life in the world.

In 1043 the place was first mentioned as Havn. Absalon, the bishop of Roskilde and later archbishop of Lund, received the fishing settlement Havn (harbor) as a royal fief in about 1160 with a small commercial harbor which he had expanded and which was named Køpmannæhafn (merchant's harbor).

In 1254 Copenhagen received its first city charter from Bishop Jakob Erlandsen. In 1416 the city became the residence of the king, and in 1443 it took over the capital function from Roskilde.

Copenhagen one of the most beautiful cities to visit. A city trip is recommended.

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and the cultural and economic center of the country. The city is the seat of parliament, supreme court, government as well as the residence of the Danish queen.
