Groupon’s Guide To Copenhagen
Overlooking the Øresund strait with Sweden, the Denmark capital is a cultural and geographic link between Europe’s mainland and Scandinavia. Copenhagen is the city where old fairy tales blend with flashy architecture and design, and jazzy tunes mix with electronic music, while the pedestrian streets of the city’s core are redolent with freshly baked bread.
The Inner city, the historical heart of the capital, is home to the National Museum featuring exhibits related to Danish history, Viking weapons, Inuit costumes and Stone Age tools. For a taste of royal Copenhagen, holidaymakers can make their way to the Amalienborg Palace, where the octagonal courtyard and King’s Garden evoke the Renaissance Period. For a true city experience, travellers can rent a bike and cruise around the city on two wheels, stopping by the numerous shopping centres and bars.
Groupon’s Guide To Oslo
Located between the Oslofjord and the hills and forests, Oslo is one of Europe’s fastest-growing capitals.
Travellers may visit Munch Museum, with its immense collection of Edvard Munch’s work, the National Gallery or the Ibsen Museum. A visit to the Opera House makes for a photo-stop, with modern architecture blending with a panorama of peaceful islands and industrial business. Guests may also explore the medieval Akershus Castle, or the Oslo Reptile Park with more than 100 animals on display, including chameleons, a poison dart frog, and a black widow.
Groupon’s Guide To Stockholm
Stockholm spreads over 14 islands, with one-third of the city made of waterways along with the green spaces that have helped this Scandinavian city earn recognition as one of the cleanest capitals.
Guests may stroll across the Långholmsgatan Bridge to get to Gamla Stan, the old city, and admire the buildings which preserve the medieval street layout. The Royal Palace allows visitors to get close to the traditions of the Swedish monarchy, while the Skansen Museum is an open-air spectacle. On Kungsholmen Island, feet can wander to the Stockholm City Hall and take in the sight of its impressive red-brick structure resting on the riverbank.
