About Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the capital city of the Kingdom of Denmark. It is a city that does a perfect job of combining classical antiquity with modern life. People have given Copenhagen honorable names such as "the Paris of Northern Europe", as the city holds many palaces, castles and other examples of ancient architecture. The whole place is completely suffused with an artistic atmosphere. As you stroll down the streets, you will see more statues than you can possibly count, along with art centers and museums. One of the city's main attractions is the Little Mermaid statue. It is located at Copenhagen's beautiful seaside promenade, Langelinie. In fact, author Hans Christian Andersen spent more than half of his life in Copenhagen and many of his most famous works were penned here.

492 Reviews
Statue/Sculpture
Copenhagen's most famous tourist attraction, the Little Mermaid sits on a rock overlooking the harbour. Created by Edward Eriksen in 1913 who was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale. The model for the Mermaid was dancer Ellen Price. The statue's head was stolen in 1964 and although police hunted for several years, neither the perpetrator nor the head were found. The head has been replaced by a replica but jokers still occasionally try to saw it off.

Featured Neighbourhood
When you come to Copenhagen, Newport is one of the frequent attractions for tourists. It is a famous bar street. The colorful old houses on the banks, the beer houses and restaurants lined up here, and the wooden boats with masts in the canals make the new port a place to taste the Copenhagen atmosphere. There is no shortage of historical celebrities' homes, and it was once the place where Andersen lived. Andersen once wrote a fairytale story about the population.

Amalienborg Palace is the place where the Danish royal family lived and the royal palace. When Christian VII ruled in 1794, a fire broke out in Christiansburg, causing members of the royal family to migrate to Amerinburg for refuge. Subsequently, Frederick V decided to build this into a Rococo-style building. To commemorate the king, people built the equestrian statue of Frederick V, which stands in the center of the octagonal square of the palace.

Trip Moments

Desperado   
Although the Carlsberg Museum has a small collection of small collections, its value is quite high, and Manets The Man Who Drinks Absinthe is here. Its hard to realize that the painting is so large. The size was basically only for the upper class, but Manet painted a destitute drunkard, which has no meaning in the eyes of the school. The rules of the paintings that the school sent to pay attention to, the Mannai was not satisfied, took the painting to participate in the salon selection, of course, the salon refused to dismiss. Manai is rebellious than I am, but instead of compromising, it has intensified. A few years later, the great work The Lunch on the Grass and Olympia were born, and Manet became one of the leaders of a group of rebellious artists. Later, this group of rebellious artists launched the first movement in the history of art - the formation of Impressionism. Speaking of "Olympia", many people say that Manet borrowed Goya's Maha and Musk's Venus. Just a few days ago, I saw a Swedish painter's "Danae and Golden Rain" at the Swedish National Museum. I felt that it was exactly the same as "Olympia". I don't know if Manet has used it. Finally, although I really like this museum, I have to say that the French painting exhibition area is not well-lit, especially this one who has great significance in art history, "The Man Who Drinks Absinthe", at the top right of the picture. Originally it was a large area of dark color, but it lacked a light source, and the visual effect was very bad. The photo was even more unbalanced. In another room, Degas was copied to one of more than 20 identical bronze replicas, but was separately displayed and pulled the cordon.
