It's not my Utopia, but it's interesting

Has anyone ever heard of Christiania, the 84-acre hippie colony/commune with 900+ residents located on a former military base in Copenhagen, Denmark?

I found out about it today because the government finally cracked down on the illegal drug scene on Christiania's Pusher Street that was apparently popular among tourists (see this article).

Some other interesting articles about Christiania can be found here.
