Irina Nielsen

We have asked our teachers to recommend a place, some Danish music or a Danish artist. This is what Irina recommends.

Do you have a favourite place in Copenhagen?
”I’m quite mad about Frilandsmuseet – a large open air museum with a collection of houses and farms from the old days. You can easily spend an entire day wandering around the beautiful buildings and imagining how people lived several hundred years ago. You can walk into many of the houses and see old furniture and tools that were used before. The museum is only open in the summer months, but it’s a lively and colourful place. There are often many activities for children, so it’s also recommended as a cosy family experience.”

Who’s your favourite Danish writer?
”Iselin Hermann. Her writing is so beautiful and poetic, yet at the same time light and modern. She is really good at describing feelings very accurately, and the plot of her books is always captivating. So be careful if you read her just before bedtime and have an early morning the next day!”
