Copenhagen, capital of Denmark for nearly 1000 years, is a civilized and attractive city. Its social and political history is reflected in its architecture, which spans from the first re-modelling in Renaissance style by the "Architect King", Christian IV (1588-1648), to the present century's wealth of public housing and welfare buildings, commissioned by the agencies of an unchallenged social democracy. Between these dates are episodes, including the late flowering of the absolute monarchy in th 18th century which produced, in Amalienborg, one of the glories of European Baroque town planning; the rebuilding in the neo-Classical style of much of the centre of the city after disasters at the beginning of the 19th century; and the appearance of Nordic Classicism" in the first decades of the 20th century. This informative guide includes Copenhagen's significant buildings spanning all periods. Each building is fully described in its own named and numbered entry, with a photograph, date, architect and location. Building plans are included, and two street maps are provided to locate each entry.
