Copenhagen is a beautiful place after emerging from its long winter slumber.
Nowhere is that more evident at the moment than at Bispebjerg Cemetery, where the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
These days, the public cemetery is packed with locals and tourists alike snapping photos of the vibrant pink flowers. The tabloid BT declared Bispebjerg the most popular spot in Denmark at the moment for taking selfies, and one look at these photos

Other places to take in the blooming cherry trees in Copenhagen include Langelinie and Kongens Have.
