Tucked into a compound in the midst of the city, and a stop on the main bus line as well as the Hop On Hop Off bus, this special combination of a utopian society and ode to the 60's is special. The open use of non addictive drugs including pot and hash is the rationale behind this artistic and free style community. Colorful murals abound. Tie died and similar clothing boutiques offer affordable and interesting garb. Restaurants, mainly with Greek fare, are well priced and popular. The residents have their own social/political format. Numerous gardens dot the various living spaces. Those who wish to partake can purchase grass and hash from street vendors and enjoy on the picnic benches under the shade trees. Narcotics (cocaine...heroin etc.) are NOT permitted. Signs detail that anyone found using narcotic drugs will be expelled. The use of cameras in the drug free zone within Christiania is not allowed and vigorously policed. Going to Copenhagen and missing Christiania would be a big miss. In much the way Greenwich Village helps define New York, or Soho London, Christiania is a special part of Copenhagen.
