WHATS GOING ON? IS COPENHAGEN the coolest city in Scandinavia? Hip, up-and-coming neighbourhoods like Vesterbro (the former red light district) and Kodbyen (the meat-packing area) are now sprinkled with offbeat art galleries, boutiques, dive bars and organic restaurants. Want to fit in with the stylish Danes? Head to Copenhagens Bella Centre from 7-8 November for the citys annual vintage extravaganza, t h e b i g g e s t f l e a m a rke t i n Scandinavia. Browse through second-hand books, suits, vintage clothing, furniture, ceramics and more. The city is famous for its markets but most close for the winter, so this is your last chance to pick up some second- hand gold.
