Dragør and Store Magleby

On the island of Amager, less than a half hour from Copenhagen, the quaint fishing towns of Dragør (pronounced drah-wer) and Store Magleby feel far away in distance and time. The two adjacent villages are part of Dragør municipality. If it weren't for the planes whizzing to and from the nearby Copenhagen Airport, then the bobbing wooden boats, cobbled streets, small squares, and well-preserved thatched-roof houses might make you think you'd gone back in time.
