Hey everyone! As you probably might have seen from my instagram photos already, a few days ago I got back from amazing three day trip to Copenhagen! First of all, you might be interested why we even decided to go to this city..? The main reason is because on August they had the sale on Ryanair and I found tickets to Copenhagen and back for 30 euros per person (craaaazy price) When I asked my boyfriend if we should go to explore one more city as a little pre-celebration for my birthday, he definitely agreed! So, as you know we are both students with a really limited budget and we decided to go to one of the most expensive cities in Europe, but for our 2,5 day trip we spent only 150 euros each! So, today I will tell you more what we did in this city, why it’s worth visiting and how we done it so cheap!
As I have mentioned before the tickets were really cheap and the flight was super short!! (only 1:10 h) Also, the great thing about traveling to Copenhagen is that the transport connections are developed very well and under the airport there is a metro station, so you can get to the city center in 10 minutes just for 5 euros!
It was our first time living somewhere through www.airbnb.com and we loved it! We lived with a host which was really friendly and even helped us to know more about Copenhagen! For the price of 64 euros per night we got a private room with a comfortable bed and great location (15min to the city center) and when you check the prices of hotels in this city you understand that it is a really great deal! 😀
If you decide to go to Copenhagen I highly recommend to stay here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21376421?eal_exp=1512100099&eal_sig=4e3ef3a35e03ccd07937a5978d1b5c5b259e5f930ed59e9d84dd5fc06dfe32ac&eal_uid=154468798&eluid=0&euid=e9912693-8eb2-c64a-61f7-f446901a1ac7
We haven’t tried any specific Danish dishes or something like this, but we visited a few places which I really liked and want you to know:
1.Paper Island – it’s a little island with a huge hangar in which you can find food for any kind of taste! (It is the same like “Open kitchen” in Vilnius) Here you can find a looot of different food: burgers, Korean food, crepes, Mexican food, cheesecakes and so on…! This place is in the list of must visit places in Copenhagen so we planned to visit it and we really liked it! We ate Moroccan food, because we wanted to try something new and unique! We tried a dish consisted of: Moroccan bread, mozzarella, avocado and meat. It was really tasty and filling, so I definitely recommend to try it, especially if your boyfriend likes to eat a lot 😀
2.Espresso house – one of the coziest places I’ve ever been! It is a really cute cafe in the center of Copenhagen (near by Nyhavn) I won’t say that coffee or food was amazing there, but I really liked the cinnamon roll, atmosphere and the interior of this place! Definitely recommend to go there for a cup of coffee when you want to have a break while exploring this amazing city! (Website: https://dk.espressohouse.com/)
3.Granola – really old and instagram friendly cafe! We ate brunch here and we really liked the food and the view around us! But I would recommend to choose this place only if you’re planning to sit and eat outside, because just then you can feel that great vibe of calm and clean Copenhagen streets!

4.Mad & Kaffe and Cafe No11 – I haven’t got the chance to visit these two places, but if you like stylish and blogger friendly places, you will love it! Also, Mad&Kaffe is at the top of best places to eat brunch in Copenhagen, because there you can pay a fixed prince and choose three different types of food! It is also very busy, so try to pick off-peak hours so you don’t have to wait in line. (Mad&Kaffe – https://www.instagram.com/madogkaffe/?hl=da ; Cafe No11 – https://www.instagram.com/cafe.no.11/)

MUST VISIT PLACES:
1.Nyhavn – All these photos of colorful houses and fishing boats are made there, and it’s definitely the most visited place in this city! I can just add that this place is really spectacular and it’s worth seeing at least once in a lifetime!
2. Rosenborg castle – a really powerful looking castle with a beautiful garden! We saw this castle only from the outside, but we really liked it! I googled some photos and I saw that the inside is even more spectacular! So, if you have time and money, you should definitely go and see all these luxurious rooms of this castle.
3.Tivoli gardens – One of the most visited places in Copenhagen! And you know the best thing? We got there for free!! The funny story is that I was trying to take a picture of the entrance of this park and when I released that no one is looking at me, because there was a lot of people around us, I just started moving forward and we were in. Even though, we got there for free, the park haven’t left any kind of big impression for me… I wouldn’t recommend to pay money to go there, but you can try and do it for free:D (The most important thing: There is amazing fireworks every Saturday, so if you will be in Copenhagen on this day make sure to see them!!!)
Well, as you probably have noticed we don’t really like visiting museums or churches and doing all this touristic stuff, but we always try to explore the city and feel like locals! We love to walk around, observe people and eat in unique places! So I hope my honest advices will help you to see this beautiful city in a best way!
