Copenhagen and Nordic Pilsen
Great Norwegian Trip

July 2, 2022, 10 p.m. - July 3, 2022, 1 p.m.

On the evening of the second day of the trip, we arrived in Copenhagen. At first glance, the city presented itself to me as a city of a factory. Not in the sense that this is a huge industrial zone. No, it wasn't like that at all. The fact is that the architecture of old residential buildings very much reminded me of the old Omsk factories. This old non-hollow brick, from which the buildings were built, this cement ... Everything especially strongly resembled one factory in Omsk, which had not functioned for a long time, but was very old. But in fact, this similarity is purely subjective and does not have a negative connotation, it just reminded me a little.

There was no clear plan of visits, so in the evening there was an easy walk, including on electric scooters. It is worth noting that electric scooters in Copenhagen are not a sufficiently convenient means of transportation, since the city has special parking areas for electric scooters, and it is completely impossible to leave them anywhere in the historic city center. So, as in Prague, renting a scooter, quickly getting to Wenceslas Square and leaving it in the adjacent street will no longer work.

So, after riding scooters through the entire historical center, we left the scooters on the other side of the city, even at a slightly greater distance from the point of interest on the map, and headed back to the center. On the way to the center, an attempt was made to get into one restaurant in the middle of the bridge, even despite the warning of other tourists passing by that the food there was terrible. But in fact it was not so important, since the goal was not food, but some kind of beer. But the restaurant was closing at that moment, so no luck.

So the path continued further, and along the way I met a house that was clearly "drunk", it looked so crooked compared to the houses surrounding it.

But in the end, an open bar under the sky was found and we managed to taste the True Nordic Pilsen (as it was written on the faucet tag). This beer was called Carlsberg. In fact, it was very similar to the Czech Pilsner Urquel, but with less bitterness.

The morning before the next departure, we spent a walk around the local bastion and looked around the statue, but there were not so many of them.

As a maritime city, Copenhagen impressed me a little less than the previous Nyborg.
