THE HARBOR OF COPENHAGEN
Discovering new places
As a famous proverb says, traveling broadens our mind. This is indeed so. When we visit a new country, we get a piece of foreign mentality. Even though most big cities are filled with the same shops, restaurants and night clubs, they all have a different history and culture. And even if you are not a fan of taking long excursions around the city or prowling historical spots, you can get a lot of impressions simply walking down the street. One of the places you definitely need to include in your roadmap is Copenhagen. This old city will strike you with a spectacular mix of medieval architecture and contemporary spirit. You can spend hours roaming its broad prospects and narrow alleys, gazing at fancy buildings and having yet another cup of coffee in one of the numerous cozy cafes, without noticing the passage of time. Leonid Afremov knows exactly how thrilling that can be. His colorful painting called ‘The Harbor of Copenhagen’ is a hymn to the beauty and wonderful aura of this incredible city.
The canvas takes us to a brightly lit Copenhagen harbor. Although it is already dark and late, life is only beginning here. Tall fanciful houses are glowing hospitably, each window adding a new stroke to the sparkling panorama of the night city. Their lights are reflected in the calm water surface creating a spectacular play of colors. At the pier, we can see two boats waiting for passengers. Their interior is also vibrantly illuminated inviting you to hop onboard and take a late trip down one of the many canals threading Copenhagen. Original, colorful and mysterious, this painting can make you believe you are actually many miles away, on the chilly shores of Denmark, breathing in its salty breeze and admiring its unusual architecture. Even the background of the canvas is filled with bright splashes of color symbolizing the starry sky over the city and the festive atmosphere in the air. Isn’t it like magic?
