Scandinavian Trip - Day 3-4 - Christiania


P3300192
Christiania

Christiania: new country

Christiania, also known as Freetown Christiania, but most commonly known amongst its inhabitants and visitors as "fristaden" or simply "staden", is a partially self-governing neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen. Christiania was started in an abandoned army baracks in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1971.

Christiania has established semi-legal status as an independent community. It also considering as social experiment with self-government and a democracy based on dialogue replacing majority voting.

More information

Now, my opinion. I would like to make a post about this part of the city of Copenhagen, because I like it very much. It's so different than a typical city, that impressed me a lot.

When we arrived from Malmö, there was a demostration in favour of Christiania as you can see in the pictures. It was a very funny demostration and everybody was wearing special clothes, playing live music in the trucks ...

I felt Christiania all around Copenhagen. In the main square of the city, in front of the town hall, there was a meeting about Christiania. Incredible!

Scandinavian Trip - Day 4 - Copenhagen


IMGP2859
What can I do in this country ...

Copenhagen: turist day

Sunday Morning. The check-out of the youth hostel was at 09.00 so we had to put our lugagge in the railway station. This also included our best suitcate "Alexander".

This suitcase had a little problem: is a big shit! So we moved carefully it, or just we picked up all the stuff when Alexandre opened its doors in the middle of the station.

IMGP0350
Alexander, we will never forgot you!


In the walk around the city, we saw the Royal Guard walking to the Palace. So we followed them like paparazzi. Curiosity: the Royal Guard had to stop when the traffic lights were red

The Changing of the Guard was quite good, but nothing really amazing. Anyway, we took the typical photos.

After that, we visited Kastellet, a Copenhagen Fortress. I like the geometric shape of the fortificaton, but you can only see in aerial photos.

During the way, I found this shop. I must point here the sign that reads "No sex, inge sex". Why did they put the sign ??

Nyhavn is part of the original Copenhagen Harbor. Relaxation is the key concept here. We just were sitting and looking the people. I liked veru much the colours of the buidings

When we were returning to the youth hostel, I met a guy from my home University in Spain. It was a big coincidence. But David met another friend in the youth hostel. Moncho is studying in Germany his Erasmus year.

We walked around the city to know the Danish nightlife. The most important event was a small party in Christinia (you, my reader, will know this place). The day was long, so we needed to eat some spagetthi at the end of the night. Thank you, French people. We won't die!

Scandinavian Trip - Day 2 night - Lund


IMGP0306
Mad Party

Lund: students and party

Finally, I arrived in Lund at 21.30. My friends from Asturias David, Fran and Roman where there with Jorge, a Spanish guy who is studying in Lund. They didn't allow me to go home, take a shower and so on because they wanted party. So .. I couldn't say no. I took a pizza from my favourite Turkish-Pizzeria and went to the first Preparty in a corridor. There, we know the "Mirandesas" team, the other-sidewalk Chinese and more people.

IMGP0304
Second preparty

We decided to go to the Mad Party. There is a building that some years ago was a mental hospital and today is a students building (corridors). So everybody sould wear and behave like a person involved in a mental hospital. We did it very well. From the same moment that we needed to negociate the price to go by taxi .... the real party started. Big moments inside the taxi, singing and jumping.

In the party, a lot of crazy people included a guy with a bottle of white wine. The party was fine until the moment that a guy say "the party is over"...

So we needed to return home. We took "our" bikes (there was a mistake with a French guy) and go home ... but the police stopped us because we haven't the proper lights to use the bikes. Fran had a little problem with the front wheel (he lost it).

P3290105
Where are the bikes?

At last, we arrived home quite tired.

Malmö is in my heart

My Scandinavian trip started on Thrusday at 17.00 aprox. I took a train from Luleå to Goteborg (20 hours) and later another from Goteborg to Malmö (4 hours). My friends were waiting in Lund, but I wanted to visited Malmö so I made this first step alone.

In the train from Goteborg to Malmö I could use a socket that was in the train!!!

Malmö .... I can say that I love this city. As an example, there is some photos that I took in Malmö.
