About Avedøre Stationsby
A city district inspired by the city planning of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Stationsbyen, a town with a railway station, was planned in 1968 and built in the period 1973-1982. From 1997-2001, Stationsbyen got a substantial quality lift, including some rebuilding, urban renewing and various cultural initiatives.
