It all began in the 1970s, when a group of people mastered the territory of the former military barracks and created a new society based on the principles of freedom and equality. Entering the territory of the district, the guest sees an inscription on a high wooden gate: “You are leaving the territory of the European Union”. The fence around Christiania is the frontier of an independent state within the state. The main source of income for Christiania is the sale of soft drugs.
