Did you know that according to the UN's World Happiness Report, Denmark beats every other country on a global happiness scale? Denmark’s success can be accredited to its good life expectancy (80 years, well above the global average of 71), GDP per capita (US$44,916, according to World Bank figures, placing it 17th overall), free/tax-financed health care, and enviable welfare system, which has made its wealth gap one of the world’s smallest. It has also been suggested in the past that Danes are genetically happier than people from other countries.
Copenhagen is the city of cyclists where half of the people pedal to work. Just as cyclists compete with cars in terms of numbers, so too they seem to try to beat them on speed. In other words, pedestrians should take care crossing a cycle lane!
Another feature attraction is the Tivoli Garden, which was opened in 1843. Tivoli is the world's second-oldest amusement park and a great place to enjoy family time. Set inside beautiful gardens with a lake and playgrounds, it's a corny but happy place with roller coaster rides, pantomime shows, treat stalls, amusement arcades and more than 40 places to eat and drink.
Have a look at the pictures for some more attractions in Copenhagen.
I will share with you a new city on my next post.
With Love Stompie!
