Copenhagen is the capital and the largest city in Denmark. The municipality of Copenhagen (Københavns Kommune) has 569,557 inhabitants in 2014, and its agglomeration, Greater Copenhagen, has 1,295,686 (January 2017). The name of Copenhagen is generally given to the whole county of Copenhagen, which includes 1 950 430 inhabitants. Located on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand, facing the Øresund Strait that separates Denmark from neighboring Sweden, Copenhagen is connected to Malmö by the Øresund Bridge. Its Danish name, København, deformation of Købmandshavn ("the port of traders"), recalls its strategic position on the Kattegat, in the immediate vicinity of the Baltic Sea.
Founded in the 10th century by the Vikings, Copenhagen is originally a fishing village, fortified in 1167. The city became the capital of the Kingdom of Denmark from the beginning of the fifteenth century. During the seventeenth century, during the reign of King Christian IV, it became one of the largest cities in Northern Europe, strengthening its status as capital. After experiencing the ravages of pestilence and many fires in the eighteenth century, Copenhagen saw the construction of the old city, including the Frederiksstaden district and institutions such as the Royal Danish Theater or the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Partly destroyed by Admiral Nelson's troops during the Battle of Copenhagen (1801), the city was rebuilt in a neoclassical style during the Danish Golden Age. Copenhagen's urban planning was renovated following the Second World War by the Finger Plan, which organizes industrial and urban development around five railway lines from the city center. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
