“"Christiania" is the free town in Copenhagen. It is a beautiful area in Copenhagen with small tree houses surrounded by beautiful natur. Forty years ago, squatters in Copenhagen set up the “free zone” of Christiania inside an old military base. The main drag is now a drug market called Pusher Street. But against all odds, and with a little help from the establishment, Christiania is doing just fine. You have to visit this place!”
