If you like libraries, you'll love this. It's modern, it's huge, and it has all you can ask from a building ike this. You can visit, work, study, take your kids for a fun read, and even have a coffee downstairs.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
