Here are photos from Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. While most people automatically think of the Little Mermaid statue when they think of Copenhagen, there is much more to the city. I’ve had the opportunity to visit Copenhagen on four cruises plus a several-day stay.

Stuart Gustafson personally took each photograph displayed, and the copyrighted images are owned by him. If you click on a thumbnail image, you will see a larger and more complete picture that opens in a separate window.

The Little Mermaid — there are usually throngs getting close to this diminutive statue, even those climbing on to get their selfie. There is an interesting story behind her creation in 1913; here’s a short version. By the way, what we see is a copy; the original has been stored away in a secret place for safety reasons.
