The first day of what was to be our experience Baltic began with the arrival of our plane to the starting point of the cruise, Copenhagen .
It was 3:00 pm in the afternoon when he landed at the airport. To move to our hotel, we opted for the metro, quite comfortable and modern environment. I noticed that the driver was not wearing. The ticket cost us € 9’69 both.
We got off at a stop near the hotel and left our bags once we went to the buffet they were preparing for dinner, it was 6:00 pm. Given that we had left Seville on the AVE 6:15 am, we decided to dine early.
The hotel we stayed at Clarion Hotel Neptun Colleccion is highly recommended, as well as being very well located and in a state of perfect preservation, included breakfast and dinner.
After regain strength, around 6:30 pm we went to see the city and places of interest. I wanted to go through New Harbor (Nyhavn) , I was fascinated when we went to our hotel with luggage without knowing that the hotel street was parallel to this place.
Nyhavn is a marvilloso channel with many boats docked, accompanied by an excellent environment because of its many restaurants and adorned with many multicolored houses. That’s where the boats that make excursions to tour the canals of the city, impossible to miss it , it’s lovely, picturesque, romantic … .. I loved.
Continuing our walk and spellbound by every street, park or building by passing, we Rosengborg Castle , beautiful castle surrounded by green and lush gardens. We were able to enjoy their exterior beauty but did not see the crown jewels that houses inside.
Follow the direction indicated our map find ourselves Round Tower (Rundetaarn) , observatory where you get great views of all Copenhagen .
Throughout the duration of the tour of the city we were guided by an explicit map of Copenhagen important tool to guide you in the city, especially because their names are hard to remember.
Radhuspladsen is the square where is located the Town Hall , is a zone environment. Next to this square we find Tivoli being the oldest amusement park in the world where not only find attractions but there are also shows, restaurants, beautiful fountains ….
Next door is a few meters Art Museum Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket with magnificent architecture. This museum was created by the owner of the beer Carlsberg .
We crossed the bridge Langebro to go to the area Christianschavn finally saw from the same bridge. But from what I read, it is an old bohemian neighborhood of Copenhagen with lots of atmosphere filled with restaurants, bars, cafes … Here we can also find the churches of Salvador (Church of Our Savior) and Chrsitiania .
We could see that there was a more direct access to this area by the bridge Knippelsbro . Around 9:30 pm we decided to return to the hotel on the steps taken, as fatigue began to take its toll on us and we decided that we would leave the next day for the rest of the sights we had left to see. Given that the ship does not set sail until 5:00 pm, we had time.
Returning to the hotel we met again with the Royal Theater located near the canal Nyhavn is a nice classical building where concerts, operas are performed …
The next day, very early we were ready to continue our tour in Copenhagen so as the day before, we continue our walking tour and headed to the Little Mermaid was also very close to our hotel.
Instead of going along the canal to reach it by Larsens Plads , we thought it was better to make the tour inside to take the road know more things about this city. Thus we encounter the palace of Amalienborg actually is 4 palaces surrounding a square of the same name, this is where the royal family lives and the changing of the guard takes place. This structure is accompanied by a building with a huge silver dome known as Marmorkirken . After photos of rigor and continuing with our walk we saw from afar a beautiful church, it was the Anglican Church of St. Alban , was beautiful, I loved it and right next to it is the magnificent fountain Gefion
We then headed to Kastelle t which is like a military fortress located inside a beautiful well kept park and finally !!!! we come to one of the most visited places in Copenhagen , the port of Langelinie I find ourselves on a rock with the Little Mermaid , small statue symbol par excellence of the city. This famous statue was a gift made by the brewer Carl Jacobsen to the city. As we can see it was a very generous man for the city of Copenhagen .
After this splendid experience we returned to the hotel to collect luggage. We’d had a very busy day where we could meet, albeit superficially, this wonderful city. She was delighted to what he had seen and had not gotten started … All that was left to me to know !!!
At reception we asked for a taxi to take us to the port where we waited Sun , the ship would become our home and our guide for 10 days …
