J'ai pris une longue marche sous la pluie dans le beau quartier historique de Christiania ! J'ai adoré et j'ai pris plusieurs photos !

I took a long walk in this historical area by this rainy morning but I enjoyed it ! I took many pictures !

" Commune libre " de Copenhague (Danemark), auto-gestionnaire et fondée en septembre 1971 sur le terrain de la caserne de Bådmandsstræde par un groupe de squatters, de chômeurs et de hippies, est une rare expérience libertaire historique toujours en activité au nord de l’Europe.

En 2003, la cité compte plus de mille habitants, sa propre monnaie, toutes sortes d’activités culturelles et sportives, ainsi qu’un vaste espace agricole.

Le drapeau de Christiania, trois points jaunes sur fond orange (ou inversement) représentant les trois points sur les trois « i » de Christiania, aurait été créé par Viktor Essmann, qui inventa ce nom, qui fait référence au nom du quartier, « Christianshavn » le port de Christian, en référence à Christian IV.

Christiania, also known as Freetown Christiania (Danish: Fristaden Christiania) is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (85 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen. From an official point of view, Christiania is regarded as a large commune, but its relation to the authorities has a unique status in being regulated by a special law, the Christiania Law of 1989 which transfers parts of the supervision of the area from the municipality of Copenhagen to the state.

Christiania has been a source of controversy since its creation in a squatted military area in 1971. Its cannabis trade was tolerated by authorities until 2004. Since then, measures for normalising the legal status of the community have led to conflicts, and negotiations are ongoing.

Among many Christiania residents, the community is known as staden ('the town'), short for fristaden ('the freetown').
