A business owner in town once made me aware of the fact, that Rio de Janeiro and Fredericia has something very special in common.
We were in his store, and had gotten to talking about the marvels of our town, when he brought to my attention, that Fredericia, besides from Rio, is the only city in the world with a beach right at the end of the main street.
I thought it a fun and surprising point - it is not very common to compare small, provinsial Fredericia to the metropol Rio - but it made me laugh.
And he does have a point!
Here is the view from the end of Prinsensgade, that is if not the main street, then one of the bigger streets passing through the center of Fredericia.

And if you look to your left:
...but PLEASE don't tell!! I want to get my hands on a city house in the center of town, before it gets to be common knowledge that Fredericia is MUCH nicer than Kolding, Vejle and Middelfart...
