Gamla Stan

August 30, 2013

Sweden is built on 14 islands and Gamla Stan is the oldest (13th century) and most beautiful. My hostel is located right in middle of Gamla Stan near the Royal Palace.

The Royal Palace

The Royal Palace has 608 rooms making it the largest royal palace in the world. I toured it today but unfortunately they do not allow photos.

Vor Friesers Kirke

August 28, 2013

A 17th century church which has an amazing panoramic view of Copenhagen. But first you must climb the 400 steps of the church's 95 meter (304 ft) high spiral tower.

Slotsholmen and Christianshavn

August 28, 2013

Slotsholmen is an island separated by the city centre by a moatlike canal on 3 sides and the harbour on the 4th. It is home to Christiansborg Palace which houses parliament.

Christianshavn  is the picturesque canal quarter and nearby Freetown of Christiana is an alternative commune which did not allow photos in the "green zone".
