Today we went on a river cruise through the canal of Denmark. When boarding the boat we had a wonderful view of blue, yellow, and red row houses, a view Copenhagen is famous for. Modern buildings such as the opera house, an addition to the library, and houses dotted the shore with their large glass windows and creative shapes. The Royal family’s castle was seen from the boat and the Denmark flag was hanging on the flag post, evidence that the royal family was staying there. Though the old castle was destroyed in a fire, we were able to view the quarters that were preserved where horses were kept. The royal family boat that they use for vacations was also in the water. The river tour provided a unique perspective on the city. We were able to see the old charming Copenhagen as well as the sleek the new Copenhagen side by side, giving us a holistic view of the city’s architecture.
