Copenhagen, Denmark

Scandinavia's largest city had many famous past residents: Hans Christian Andersen, author of The Ugly Duckling, to Søren Kierkegaard, father of existentialism. You'll find a city of castles, galleries and museums made for strolling. Go shopping on Strøget, longest pedestrian street in the world. Perhaps venture to the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain factory or the Tuborg Brewery. You could tour the city's many canals or simply sit in one of the many outdoor cafes in the New Harbor and admire the tall ships. For the perfect Scandinavian summer experience, head for Tivoli Gardens and join the Danes as they shrug off their long dark winter amid the lively music and twinkling lights of this famous park.
