4. Copenhagen, Denmark "[N]ational museum, national gallery, new harbour, joined canal tours, Tivoli gardens."

Lastminute.com reviewer Savvas says, "Great weather, great people, but really expensive. I didn't expect it to be so expensive and especially food. Loved the design museums and especially Louisiana museum of contemporary art. Travelled alone: I love solo travelling. I feel free and independent and more adventurous. Usually my friends don't like contemporary art etc. Places you saw: Louisiana museum of contemporary art, design museum, national museum, national gallery, new harbour, joined canal tours, Tivoli gardens. Learn from experience: Hostels are great for travelling. You can save a lot of money. Also bring your refill bottle for water. I learned many things I didn't know about the Danish history and also new practices and techniques I should incorporate in my job. Fellow travelers have a credit card and especially revolut. There are places in Copenhagen that do not accept cash. Like most in trip: Design museums, urban life, weather."
