Copenhagen News in Brief: Capital’s most expensive flat
Football security measures work
New measures put in place by Københavns Vestegns Politi during the annual Brøndby and FCK derby on Monday reduced the violence that usually plagues the match. Efforts were put in place to keep the fans of the two teams separate from each other. Only seven arrests were made, of which none were made in connection with violence at the match.
Copenhagen’s most expensive flat
An apartment for sale in Copenhagen has set a new record for the most expensive asking price ever for a condominium in the city. The 380 square metre luxury penthouse located in the new ‘Silo’ building in Nordhavn is priced at 29,995,000 kroner, over 2 million kroner more than the previous record-holder.
Clean air in the city
Copenhagen has been named Europe’s second cleanest city in the latest European Environmental Bureau (EEA) rankings. The bureau ranked 23 cities according to their levels of air pollution. Only Zurich’s ranked cleaner. The bureau said that both cities had substantially reduced the number of vehicles on their streets and worked hard to support walking, public transport and bicycles.
Den Blå Planet tops two million
Two million people have visited Den Blå Planet, the Danish National Aquarium, since it opened just two years ago. Den Blå Planet is among the five most visited tourist attractions in Denmark. “Our position as one of Denmark’s most visited attractions shows that we have created a special experience,” said Dorte Gleie, the CEO of Den Blå Planet.
