Walk through the unusual town of Denmark
• Walk through the unusual town of Denmark
I reached Aalborg! City on the other side of Denmark. The machine drive 3, 5 hours on an airplane to fly 40 minutes. It is the fourth most populous city in the country after Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense, which, moreover, has the status of an industrial and educational center, but to me it seemed somehow empty.
However, it turned out that Aalborg is a factory of the Danish "anise", a reference to the Copacabana Beach, obscenely expensive hostels, toilets with a slight touch of sexism and hares on veloparkovki.
I get up early in the morning and found a nice sunrise!
zavodik beautifully complements the landscape. I do not know that it was smoke, but generally do in Aalborg aquavit - it's such a tincture of potato spirit (to taste may resemble "anise") - and boiler systems for ships. It also operates a cement plant, founded in the XIX century. But for the local fauna, all these companies - not a problem.
In the morning Bicycle parking near the hotel ran a hare! And it is in the city center. That's what a good environment)
Let's look at the improvement of the waterfront. As it is now fashionable, in Aalborg former port converted into a public space. We have placed benches, lanterns, made children's playgrounds. Now you can enjoy the view of a smoking factory, lying on a comfortable sun lounger!
house music ... Some funky, architects began to play with different forms. The building is based Symphony Orchestra and tested exercises the Royal Academy of Music.
And this university. Generally, Aalborg is one of Denmark's student capitals. There is actually Aalborg University and the University College of Northern Denmark, something like a college, which mainly produces for the local physicians large medical center.
The hostel) Accommodation for students is even very cheap, an average of about 34 thousand. Per month. By the way, the University has calculated the average monthly budget for new students. It turns out 75 thousand. Rubles for food, insurance, books and teaching materials, excursions and "social life."
is strange to see the car) In general, cars in Denmark is not enough.
improvement. Previously, in the center of Aalborg it was the port and industrial area and the market. Then all unnecessary demolished and built the park, people for the first time in a long time have access to water. The park was divided into an eastern and western zone. If the West is used for relaxation, in the east, on the contrary, there are all sorts of things for active play.
Chairs on the circuit!
An interesting solution.
Outdoor hammocks. Have not seen these, I tried - proved to be very convenient. We must take note.
Let's take a little improvement to show you. That is done Square.
Now in vogue wild thickets) Or as it is properly called, when they simulate the meadows and forests?
On the waterfront in Aalborg main design element - a rusty metal. Apart from him when creating the public area of asphalt was used, concrete, rubber and wood.
outdoor toilets also finished with metal. By the way, the urinals are free, but for the toilet will have to pay. Is not there a sexist?
All the elements of design - from rusty metal. Architects say that and think: they say, the materials should be as natural as the fjord itself, on the shore of which a park.
Even the lampposts. By the way, pay attention to the street profile: only one lane in each direction on a wide road.
And columns. How do you?
Weather rapidly deteriorates.
The sidewalk small stone blocks, like in Portugal. As for the figure, the architects say, that referred to the paving of the famous Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro.
The transition from the traffic island.
What a strange advertising with two naked fellows, staring at each other's hairy balls ... We would after such advertising director advertising agency put ...
Closed shame that you are not confusing. In general, children in Denmark have hard times ...
They go and look ...
A little different from the other cities of Northern Europe.
Another area cycling paradise.
Very nice look local beds.
