What is unique about Copenhagen?

For a number of years, Copenhagen has ranked high in international surveys for its quality of life. Although it is one of the world's most expensive cities, it is also one of the most livable with its public transport, facilities for cyclists and its environmental policies. Copenhagen has one of the world's most dedicated bike cultures and plans to become the first carbon-neutral capital by 2025. Already now, the city has more bicycles than people. In elevating Copenhagen to "most livable city" in 2013, Monocle pointed to its open spaces, increasing activity on the streets, city planning in favor of cyclists and pedestrians, and features to encourage inhabitants to enjoy city life with an emphasis on community, culture, and cuisine.
