For a person coming from Southern Europe and especially from Greece, a trip to Copenhagen can be a kind of cultural shock. Everything is functioning perfectly and that can stir a strange mixture of emotions: surprise, wonderment, disbelief, amazement, envy perhaps, just to name a few. So, maybe it is best to write just that: everything is functioning!
Naturally there also many cons, which can be summed up in one word: the weather. In the middle of May most people in Greece have enjoyed their first swims in the sea while in Copenhagen the average temperature is 7°C , so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Greeks have a hard time considering permanently living in such a perfect place.
Denmark ‘s heart, Copenhagen is a paradigm-city in every sense. It is not a coincidence that it was voted once again this year as the best city in the world to live in. There is history, beauty, refinement, comfort and great architecture hidden (or rather revealed) at every corner. It is definitely worth visiting any time of the year.
One of its most iconic buildings is the Copenhagen Opera House. It officially opened its doors on January 15, 2005 and it is one of the most modern opera houses on the planet. It is situated opposite to the Amalienborg palace (the winter home of the Danish royal family) and one of its many unique characteristics is that 5 of its 14 floors are below sea level.
If you are ever in this remarkable city and you want to attend a performance at this state-of-the-art building you can order your tickets here.
