Friday Evening Activities.

In keeping with the packed schedule that the Nordic Barista Cup operates, at the close of lectures and events yesterday we loaded onto buses, headed for a guided tour of Freetown Christiania. Originally established by squatters in 1971, Christiania is a micronation – an self-proclaimed autonomous commune of around 900 people, located inside Copenhagen.

From Christiania, we boarded two canal boats for a tour of some of the waterways that cut their way through the city of Copenhagen. With glasses of champagne in hand we went by the city’s opera house and theatre – striking and monolithic structures that impose themselves grandly at the water’s edge.
