The Danes love big buses.   Well, long buses actually.   So those kind people at East Lancs coachbuilders in Blackburn have supplied two batches of Volvo B7TLs to Copenhagen (below).   First Glasgow in the UK also have a batch (right) which are reminiscent in ride quality of MCW Metropolitans.   Despite having room for two football pitches on the upper deck, the lower deck is rather cramped with no seat intentionally facing forwards.   The enormous and hot engine can also be a bit overwhelming.   A bit of Hong Kong comes to Europe.
Photo Facts (from top to bottom): Copenhagen's most famous tourist spot (apart from the little mermaid) is Nyhavn - a row of raucous restaurants near the port; Nordics are operated by Arriva Danmark (14 vehicles) and City-Trafik (22 vehicles) on Copenhagen city services; First Glasgow operate 10 Nordics such as 31512 (SA52DVY) seen in Hope St; City Trafik 2805 (RT91792) outside Copenhagen railway station; Arriva Danmark 1448 (SB95710); City-Trafik 2802 (RY96619) at Copenhagen airport; First Glasgow also operate former Hong Kong three-axle vehicles such as 30099 (K483EUX).

Salt Restaurant, Copenhagen
Located on the quayside, Salt Restaurant is part of the impressive Admiral Hotel, serving modern seafood dishes in a slightly formal atmosphere.   Away from the hustle and bustle of Nyhavn.
