Freetown Christiania is located in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital, Copenhagen. In 1971 a group of locals squatted the former military barracks with the ambition to live in a self-governing society. The commune now has almost 1000 residents who live according their own set of rules, which initially were respected by the Danish government, but when liberal drug policies became uncontrollable, the relations became more strained. Since 2010 Danish law applies to Christiania. The commune receives over half a million visitors per year and is one of the largest tourist attractions of Denmark.
