Copenhagen is the perfect blend of ancient reverie and à la mode architecture. A city, which is thought to have been a Viking village in the early ages, Copenhagen found its way to the history in the 11th century, when it originated with a harbour.
The city gained significance when, in the middle of the 12th century, its reins were handed over to Bishop Absalon, who fortified it by building a portentous stone wall around it during the 13th century. Copenhagen has had its own share of peaks and valleys. The city, in the earlier times, was repeatedly attacked by the Germans, and had to hold out against a siege. Despite being tested a multitude of ways, Copenhagen successfully stood the test of time.
Copenhagen, having been blessed with a magnolious harbour, soon developed into a significant trading nucleus of the country. Currently helmed by Queen Margarethe II of Denmark, Copenhagen became a city in 1254, under Bishop Jakob Erlandsen.
While one can quench their touristy thirst by visiting the city at any time of the year, one should visit from May to September to nestle in the warmth of the sun; in January, if one wants to spend some time with a snowman; in December, if one wants to hear the jingle bells! All in all, Copenhagen offers the tourists a wholesome experience. It beats the blues, refreshes one's souls, and offers an adventurous experience all along!
