Feeling Happy in Copenhagen

                          "The Little Mermaid" statue in Copenhagen
It's hard not to feel happy in Copenhagen. This cosmopolitan Scandinavian city is clean, safe, exciting, and full of open-minded people. Some might even say it feels like a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen wrote many fairytales; The Princess and the Pea, The Snow Queen, The Ugly Duckling, and The Little Mermaid to name a few.

Copenhagen's top attraction is "The Little Mermaid" bronze statue displayed on a rock by the waterside at Langelinje Pier. Made by sculptor Edvard Erichsen "The Little Mermaid" statue is visited by 75% of tourists that come to Copenhagen throughout the year. Other places to visit when in Copenhagen are 
Blue Planet Aquarium, Tivoli Gardens, Stroget Street (for shopping), The Rundetaarn (a 17th century tower) and the famous Danish castle known as Kronborg Castle.
                                 
                                  Tivoli Gardens is a favorite attraction

The Danish like to eat and so do the tourists. "Noma" is currently considered the world's best restaurant and it's right in Copenhagen. Other popular restaurants to consider eating at if a reservation at "Noma" is impossible are AOC, Cap Horn, Fiskebaren, Geranium and Ida Davidsen.
