Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark; a city rich with culture and lovely people. Since most Danes in Copenhagen speak English to a good degree, it will not be hard to communicate and get around the area. Danish is a difficult language to master due to the pronunciation, so pay attention to Danes and try to practice as much as possible.

During my work as a so-called “buddy” for international students, the most frequently appearing remarks on what they weren’t aware of were twofold: on the one hand, students were quite obviously saddened by the sight of spending long time in a rainy city, and, on the other hand, they were surprised to learn that most Danes are introverted and rarely socialises beyond their familiar group of friends.

Anyone considering moving to Copenhagen should know that being capable of riding a bike is advisable. They should also know that the land is very flat, so no nearby skiing is possible even if the city is covered by snow. Lastly, they should know that services are very expensive, so knowing how to cook, fix stuff at home, etc. is recommendable.
