Superestonians going to the city of bikes, cozy architecture and freedom
Unlike huge American highway-megalopolis, or gray and dehumanized block house neighborhoods in post-soviet towns, Copenhagen is outstandingly human wherever you go. City is designed for people, not for cars or industrial production. Here Jane Jacob’s “sidewalk ballet” idea is fully fulfilled: it doesn’t matter how far you need to walk, your route will always provide you with sense of closeness and being a part of community with its narrow sidewalks, big, but not overcrowded concentration of friendly people, and most importantly — outstandingly cozy architecture. Danes even have a special word for coziness and comfortable conviviality: “hygge”, what proves how cautious they are about their social relationships and their living environments.
