Copenaghen ha una storia lunga e ricca. La capitale danese fu ufficialmente fondata nel 1167 dal Vescovo Absalon, ma recenti ricerche hanno rilevato che esistono tracce di insediamenti precedenti di epoca vichinga. Copenaghen era una città mercantile molto importante e molto trafficata durante il Medioevo. Da qui si controllavano la maggior parte dei commerci sul Baltico.
Un'ampia parte della storia della città è ancora visibile, sono molti gli edifici medievali presenti e numerosi i musei. Ecco per te una guida alle attrazioni "storiche" da non perdere (in inglese).
