The Little Mermaid, Copenhagen, Denmark
The Little Mermaid I was so excited to see the statue of The Little Mermaid, my childhood fairy tale idol. The little Mermaid sitting at Langelinie in Copenhagen, is one of Denmark's biggest tourist attractions. Morethan on million people visit the mermaid every year. Thousands of post cards and, t-shirts and other souvenirs are sold to tourists. "She is so small", says most people seeing The Little mermaid for the first time. And she is. Only 1.25 meter (approx 4 feet) high, she is very small, sitting on her rock and looking at the water at Langelinie.
