Three Days in Copenhagen Travel Guide

Copenhagen is one of my favorite cities. While the Danish capital has a rich history and its fair share of classic European architecture, what I loved most about Copenhagen is that absolutely everything seems like it's on the cutting edge, from the way locals are dressed (so chic!) to all things design, food and even…
