A visual tour of Cristiansborg Castle

OK, So as my first blog entry, I thought I would dig through my trip to Copenhagen I took about one hundred years ago. Kidding! I went three years ago when social media platforms like Instagram had just given birth to a cute little baby and didn't know it would be the monster he is today and Snapchat was some vague concept going around being tested out on teenagers and competing with some other video app called Vine. Nonetheless, as part of my travel series, I want to share some highlights from my trip. And don't worry, they'll be more posts from more cities to come!  So in this feature, I thought I would do a two part story, one being the grounds of the magnificent Chrisiansborg palace.

One of my first excursions was a trip to the famous Christiansborg Palace, spelt wrong naturally because I don't have that fancy O on my keyboard like people in Scandiland have. I love Scandis. Be prepared to see some majorly scandified  posts on my Pinterest and Tumblr accounts. What was I saying? Oh yes, Christiansborg Palace. It's worth a visit, the pictures will assure you.

When you walk in you don't really feel all that impressed. As a Brit, I am accustomed to waltzing into grand castles from being dragged on school trips to parental excursions. Even now, well into my adulthood I can't keep away from fancy castles and museums. Culture. Pah. But this Palace is indeed a force to be reckoned with. Drawing rooms finished to almost Marie Antoinette's standards, that Anna Wintor and Grace Coddington would be proud and antique furniture to make the nostalgic swoon. It's all there.

Don't even get me started on the chandeliers.

More I hear you say? Lol. Just kidding but seriously, there is indeed so much more. Stay tuned for my Copenhagen diary pt. 2. (All photos taken by me)
