Old town in Aarhus



all images © Eni Turkeshi Photography

Last weekend i had the chance to visit the city of Aarhus , one of the biggest cities of Denmark.
The city gets the name from the river runing into it.

That`s why it reminded me of Amsterdam a bit because of its bicycles,river and some of its houses.

It`s one of the most energic cities of Denmark thanks to the many students living here.Although we did not have a long time to visit it , i can say it was a lovely city, which i wish i will revisit soon.
But what i want to talk about in this post , is the Old Town in Aarhus, a historic treasure.The town is celebrating its 100 anniversary.
The town consists of 75 old houses , gardens,shops,workshops,and exhibitions.You can feel yourself living in an Andersen tale for a while;)
There were different shops of different crafts there such as bicycle makers, shoe makers , tailors , coppersmiths, barber etc.
I also found a photographers house:) It was so cool with great furniture and an old camera to die for.
The houses were very lovely too and mostof them very well furnished.

The river passes between some of the houses and lots of swans and gooses made it even more lovely.
When i saw them and the houses for a moment i felt myself like a protagonist at `Nils Holgerson` movie:))

There are different exhibitions and events being organized here and also picnik houses are available for the visitors .
I think this is a ver very good idea.You can have your food in a very special old house .

Actually there are a loft of things to be told about this special city but i will leave this to the photos to show;)

One last info: The entrance fee is 11 euro for tourists and around 7.5 euro for students.

Ne rrethinat e Stokolmit e kam bazen tani por shkova prape mbrapsht ke vendin me gjelberim te perhershem per te pare ndeshjet e kualfikimit per World Cup.

Ja nje mesazh per fancezet kudo qe ndodhen: U helmofshi me ato djathrat me ere dhe u zente ndonje gripi derri inshallah. Hilacake!

Poshte Franca!

eni said...

lol;)))

me qe ra fjala te premten e kaluar isha ne Gothenburg.ishte shume qytet i kendshem, me pelqeu per faktin se ngjante me shume qytete.

BEBOPCOWBOY said...

Niiiiiiice! Po ti ke fillu pune Gjeometer apo si????

Sapo kemi ardhur dhe nuk kemi pasur kohe te explorojme. Kam qene ne Malmo por jo ne Goteborg. Une i kma vene syrin Islandes. Cilin vend do keshilloje ti ne Islande per te vizitiuar?

eni said...

lol pune si gjeometer;)
jo akoma jo;)
thjesht perfituam te ikim ne Suedi me shkollen meqe jemi shume afer se une jam ne veri te Danimarkes.

ne Islane ka shume vende te bukura por nese do ikesh ne dimer sic ika dhe une vjet , do te keshilloja te ikje pas Rejkjavikut , te shihje geysir , pastaj prane saj ke ujevaren gjigande Gulfoss .Duhet te vizitosh patjeter Lagunen Blu qe eshte shume afer me Rejkjavikun.
Si dhe nje vend qe quhet Krisuvik qe eshte shume afer me nje vend qe quhet Grindavik.edhe ky vend eshte afer me kreqytetin.une do te keshilloja gjithashtu qe pasi te ikesh ne kryeqytet te shkosh ne ndonje nga zyrat e turistave sepse aty ka shume lloje turesh me cmime te arsyeshme.
ka dhe nje vend te bukur qe quhet Thorsmork por kam frike se nuk iket ne dimer:(
per me shume info shif setin tim te ISLANDES ne flickr;)
