Where? Copenhagen, Denmark
Recommended by Bjoern from Denmark
Politikens Boghal was opened in October 1915 by Alfred G. Hassing. When the bookstore opened, it was no larger than a newsstand kiosk and in 1919 it got divided into the domestic and foreign department. This is were the tradition of a very-well stocked English section starts. The stock of the modern Politikens Boghal offers a wide selection of titles both in Danish and in English. The English section covers titles from the fiction category where you can find everything from the classics to the fresh releases, but also a wide selection of non-fiction titles. This category offers books on economy and business, biographies, visual arts, issues related to Denmark, its culture and history, and many other topics, but it's mostly praised for its great selection of travel guides and history books. The bookstore also specializes in antiquarian books.
