Christiania

ist eine alternative Wohnsiedlung in der dänischen Hauptstadt Kopenhagen, die seit 1971 besteht. Aus Sicht der dänischen Behörden handelt es sich um eine staatlich geduldete autonome Gemeinde.
Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (84 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen. Civic authorities in Copenhagen regard Christiania as a large commune, but the area has a unique status in that it is 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. It was closed by residents in April 2011, whilst discussions continued with the Danish government as to its future, but is now open again. 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. In the years following 2004, measures for normalizing the legal status of the community led to conflicts, police raids and negotiations. More recent governments have, however, been more tolerant.[citation needed]
Among many Christiania residents, the community is known as "staden" ("the town"), short for "fristaden" ("the freetown").

Christiania is also known for this part - that art which is kinda run by drug addicts and used to have their own law which means that they even killed people here and got away with it. Still you can see the addicts here and drug sellers hiding behind curtains in sales booths.
