Here at TC we love Instagram. So much so our website design was even inspired by it's grid format.
For us, Instagram is a digital window into the soul of a city. It captures the moments that make our everyday lives extraordinary and highlight the very best of our favourite places.
It's also the perfect platform for marketing place to visitors (and locals). While in the past, cities could rely on their thousand (or even million) Instagram users to promote events, initiatives, great architecture or the best cafes, Governments are now taking charge and creating high impact, and well managed Instagram accounts.
One search, or stumble onto, the VisitCopenhagen account and you're hooked! The street life, the colours, the sunsets, the view, and every other moment captures, adds up to showcase the various faces of one of the world's most liveable cities.
The account is managed by the official Tourism Organisation for the Captial Region of Denmark and stresses that it is "An #iphoneonly look at Copenhagen" which should please Instagram purists. They have got this one right!
See more of their great images here and if you've visited Copenhagen recently let us know if they've got the vibe right?

"Instagram provides a human touch to a digital sphere and is the perfect antithesis to an often over commercialised tourism campaign." - @John_OCal
