So how's that place off the usual radar? I guess by Copenhagen or even Parisian standards, it's still a bit too much of grit from the long soviet occupation, but since they've joined the Eurozone in last January and they're the continental capital of culture this year, we've heard a little bit of their country over here. That's how I recently saw they had a seemingly mad collection of Art Nouveau buildings. Pictures of that in a report eventually gave me a good feeling about it.
^it's soviet past certainly shows, but the older parts have some really nice houses and areas that have been restored well..

My gf and I spend the weekend touring the eastern part of the island we live on ( Zealand ) - here's a few photos from today and yesterday

Stevns Klint - a recent entry to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites due to it's cliffs that exposes layers from the last 72 million years - it offers one of, if not THE best, place to observe the layer from the Chicxulub meteorite that 65 million years ago killed off most of the dinosaurs
