The City of Copenhagen is an ancient trading port. It has a very long and colorful history. Over the last 20 years, the City of Copenhagen has truly flourished.
Its economy has grown very strong and it has become a vibrant, very international City. Its great focus on sustainability and bicycling has made it a role model for many other major cities around the world. In London and New York, to “Copenhagenize” means to make room for bicycles and focus on a more eco-friendly great city. The inner city canals have been cleaned up so thoroughly that you can now swim in them and Copenhagen has recently been named the cleanest capital in the world.
