When a place is good, the rewards just keep coming. It’s the same for an individual. If one is good in terms of character and dedication to work, he or she will surely reap the rewards sooner or later.
The city of Copenhagen is a classic example. With a good environment that boasts of wonderful places worth visiting and innovative people both young and old, this Danish capital has achieved much success.
After hogging the headlines for its unique bike program, world class and Michelin star restaurants as well as award winning companies in the field of science and technology, Copenhagen has added another feather on its cap.
The latest reward pertains to the city’s cleanliness. For this year 2009, Copenhagen was voted the cleanest city among 49 European capitals surveyed by TripAdvisor, a popular travel website. The recognition came after TripAdvisor conducted its yearly online survey covering more than 2,400 travelers. Coming in second is Zurich and Stockholm in third place.
The online poll on the best and worst cities of Europe featured several categories. On the positive note, Venice was voted the best place for romance while Prague is highly recommended for bargain hunters. Paris got the vote for the city with the best cuisine and best dressed people while the friendliest people belonged to Dublin.
So what does Copenhagen’s recognition mean? It only means one thing – that the city is the best when it comes to taking care of its ecosystem. Being voted the cleanest city by travelers is a big honor because it only means that they consider this urban center as very healthy for visitors.
I shared with you just recently the results of a global survey on the world’s best cities which placed Copenhagen as the best city in the Nordic region. If you still haven’t gone to this city, it’s time you include it in your itinerary.
