Destination Copenhagen: Kastellet

Destination Copenhagen: Kastellet Ph. Juri Signorini

The Kastellet is a military fortification dating back to the 16th century, one of Europe's best preserved star-shaped fortresses (those built to withstand gunfire).

Even today, some of its buildings are used by Danish military. But since the Danes have changed their nature, Kastellet has become one of the most popular public parks in Copenhagen.

Walk in the paths of the citadel or hop on the fortified ramparts to look at the sea, has become normal for the residents, who come here to relax. Beside relaxation, tourists have the opportunity to take some pictures to the ramparts, the characteristic red barracks or the only mill built inside.

Not to mention that the Kastellet, is not far from the Little Mermaid.

Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
