Old and modern architecture in Copenaghen (Part #2)

The second and last part of Copenaghen city architecture photo gallery. As in the first part of gallery, I’ve blended together old buildings with modern buildings photos, palaces that you can admire walking in this beautiful city.

 

In this gallery.

The Rundetårn (Rundertaarn), the real icon of Copenaghen, it is a spectular building and offers a breath-taking panorama of the city, to those who can climb the 209-meter spiral equestrian staircase leading to the top of the tower, built as an astronomical observatory.

 

Copenaghen Street Food – PapirØen (Paper Island) – In the small food trucks you can get delicious sustainable street food from all corners of the world – and enjoy it indoors in the raw halls or in the sun overlooking the city’s waterfront.

 

Marble Church, with the characteristic copper green dome and one of the most impressive churches of the city.

 

The colourful Palads cinema established in Copenhagen’s old former central railway station.

The Royal Danish Playhouse (theatre).

Copenaghen Opera House, the most modern opera houses and also one of the most expensive in the world. The ceiling in the main auditorium is adorned with 100.000 sheets of 24 carat gold leaf, equivalent to 1.5 kilos of gold.

Christiansborg Palace, the only building in the world that houses the three supreme powers: the executive power, the legislative power, and the judicial power. It is the seat of the Danish Parliament, the Danish Prime Minister’s Office and the Supreme Court of Denmark.

Rosemborg Castle, a royal hermitage set in the King’s Garden in the heart of Copenhagen, built by the most famous Scandinavian king, Christian IV.

Church of Our Saviour, with its famous helix spire with an external winding staircase

St. Paul’s and St. Alban’s Church.

Some industrial buildings (warehouses, factories) converted for civil use, as school or houses.
