The objective of this paper is to present selected contemporary activities in the urban space of Copenhagen aimed at the recovery of land in the process of revitalisation. They constitute examples of rational and economical management of areas inside the city limits and they inscribe in the concept of limiting of the urbanisation costs. The current harmonious development of the capital of Denmark constitutes a result of a strategy, in force for decades now, based on the implementation of architectural and urban planning solutions aimed at the continuous improvement of the comfort of living of the city residents. The urban culture is expressed in the creation of top quality public spaces, especially in the organisation of pedestrian zones based on the principles of the universal design.
