I thought as I read the Culture Map’s blog about 14 Most Colourful Towns and Cities in Europe that posting a distorted photograph of one of those cities would present more of a challenge. How wrong I was. There might be 14 or more colourful cities in Europe, and more in the world beyond but most people zeroed in on the colourful buildings that line the wharf of Nyhavn. These buildings are, along with the Little Mermaid, the iconic view of Denmark’s capital Copenhagen.
Apart from the regular winners there are a couple of new names on the list. Congratulations to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Liz (@holistic_liz), Atul (@pixodentist), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Richard (@RField75) who all identified the city as Copenhagen.
This week the scene, in its undistorted state, has become widely associated with the city you will find it in and is fast becoming the de facto skyline photograph used to show the city; much like the photograph above is widely recognised as being in Copenhagen.
