Although Lyla was born in Denmark, she spent most of her life in other European countries and never set foot in Denmark until she was fifteen. So she decided to right this wrong and moved to Copenhagen to attend university there.

Her blog, Lyla’s Copenhagen, aims to show the lesser known aspects of the city, the off-the-beaten-path places that she discovers, like parks, shops, museums or beaches.

Lyla’s passion for the Danish capital permeates her writing. She takes us to beautiful, stately castles, gardens and beaches (according to her, “summer actually truly exists here, even if it’s for a couple of weeks”).
