Copenhagen - a modern Fairytale City
Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark with a population of 1,213,822. Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the beginning of the 15th century, but has existed since 800. Her Majesty Queen Margrethe has also her main residence in Copenhagen - Amalienborg.
Copenhagen is a major regional center of culture, business, media, and science, and it is also concidered as one of the world's most environmentally friendly, e.g. the water in the inner harbour is so clean that it is safe for swimming. Since the turn of the millennium, Copenhagen has seen a strong urban and cultural development. This is partly due to massive investments in cultural facilities as well as infrastructure and a new wave of successful designers, chefs and architects.
