Copenhagen: Hello Christiania!

Have you heard about that one place on earth without laws where a creative community lives under its own rules? These mainly revolve around the consumption of weed on Pusher Street, as confidential sources have advised me. It’s called Christiana, located in Christianshavn, Copenhagen, and I was staying in a beautifully Scandinavian place right opposite it last weekend. (hey Mum!)

Christiana used to be a 41-hectare military camp and was declared a “free land” by a number of hippies and squatters in the 1970s. It is huge, has a lake, a cafe, craft shops, flowery gardens, workshop spaces and all kinds of other things that you could possibly need for a chilled, communal lifestyle. So that was a fantastic, if perhaps uncivilised, introduction to the many faces of Copenhagen, keep your eyes peeled for more photo stuff coming soon!
