Copenhagen & eastern Denmark

Copenhagen is a city that loves culture and modernity, and which truly expresses this attitude through its museums, cultural venues, exhibitions, and creative events.
Located on the east coast of the Zealand island, only a few kilometers separate the capital city of Denmark from the Swedish coastline and the city of Malmö on the other side of the Øresund strait. And maybe it’s because of its being a city keen on relationships with other people, that Copenhagen is so tolerant and open to foreign cultures and to innovation. A positive attitude we can see also in all those museums and events – in the city, in its region (Region Hovedstaden, known in English-speaking countries as the Capital Region of Denmark), and across the whole eastern Denmark – which celebrate the encounter between Danish and international arts, the union of architecture and nature, and the curiosity for different civilizations.
Our suggestion: if you have time, take a car or use the efficient Danish public transport network and travel few miles out of Copenhagen’s center to visit some of the beautiful museums in the city’s outskirts, many of which, additionally, are among the best examples of contemporary architecture in Europe.
