Copenhagen, Denmark topped their list as the best city for travelers to visit in 2019. They went in deep with the details as they talked about the city’s design, food, and vibe. The Scandinavian city goes way beyond its quaint restaurants, beautiful street-scapes, and waterfronts. Denmark now ranks as the 3rd happiest country on earth according to the United Nations, with Norway and Finland snatching the 1st and 2nd place.
Copenhagen is the largest city in the country which significantly affect the happiness rates of its residents. 63% of the city’s population are bicyclists and touted as a carbon dioxide-neutral capital. With two amusement parks, it’s not a surprise that it is home of ‘Hygge,’ the Danish word for coziness.
The city isn’t all about happiness and aesthetics but is also a recipient for many nominations and accolades. A distinction like the best city for families, best city to swim in and a nomination for the best gay-friendly place makes it more inviting compared to its many counterparts across the globe. Food travelers are also in for a treat as the city houses a total of 18 Michelin Stars which is the most for any Scandinavian country. With more developments going on for the Copenhagen and a continuous increase in happiness rate, Disneyland might lose its title as The Happiest Place on Earth soon.
