Little Mermaid Statue in Copenhagen
The capital Copenhagen, located on the island of Zeeland, in fact itself is the main attraction of Denmark. The monument to the Little Mermaid, located in the port of Copenhagen, has become a kind of symbol of Denmark for some time now. The sculpture, sitting on a granite pedestal, is dedicated to the character of Andersen's fairy tale, which tells a beautiful love story: the sea beauty, saving the handsome prince from the storm, fell in love with a young man and turned to the sorceress so that in exchange for her wonderful voice, she would give her legs, and the little mermaid was able to land. According to the spell, the girl was supposed to fall in love with the prince, but if she did not succeed, she was supposed to turn into sea foam. As it turned out, the heart of the young man was captured by another, and after the period given by the spell, the little mermaid died, turning into foam.
The ballet, staged according to the fairy tale in 1906, impressed one of the spectators – Carl Jacobsen, who later became famous as founder of the Carlsberg company. It was on his initiative that the statue of the Little Mermaid was created, which in 1913 took pride of place on the coast of Copenhagen.

Initially, the building of the temple, built of red brick in the Baroque style, was the most important landmark of Denmark, but only half a century after the completion of construction, it acquired an even more original look, when the temple was crowned with an unusual spire resembling a bee sting.
The interior of the temple is amazing.
- For example, an unusual altar made of wood and marble, and not like the iconostases familiar to everyone. Or an ancient musical instrument – a huge organ of 3 thousand pipes, which is still in good condition, and you can even enjoy its amazing sound.

6. Øresund Bridge (Copenhagen – Malmö)
Øresund Bridge – a tunnel between Denmark and Sweden
Another major attraction in Denmark, the Øresund Bridge between the Danish capital of Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö, is a grandiose project that began to be implemented in 1995. First of all, the emergence of this project was facilitated by the abolition of passport control and the simplification of customs control between Denmark and Sweden. Having already begun the implementation of the project, the workers found 18 unexploded shells from the Second World War in the places where the bridge was installed. During the construction of the bridge, another unexpected problem arose – one of the segments of the tunnel skewed due to an error in engineering calculations. Nevertheless, this did not prevent, bypassing all the difficulties and eliminating all the shortcomings, by August 1999 to complete the construction of a grandiose structure – a bridge-tunnel 7,845 meters long, combining a double-track railway and a four-lane highway.
Øresund Bridge has become a masterpiece of modern engineering, causing real admiration for its grandiosity. Today, every year, tens of millions of people cross the bridge to get to the neighboring country by the shortest route. Thus, the bridge made it possible to bring the borders of the two states closer and significantly reduce the travel time.

Museum of Modern Art in Aarhus

Thus, the visit begins from the lower floors with a “hellish” entourage, and the top of the structure is crowned with a transparent rainbow halo, from inside which you can observe the surrounding panorama of the city.
The museum was opened not so long ago, in 2004, but has already managed to gain fame not only among local residents, but also, of course, among guests of the city and the country. Here you will find a huge variety of expositions – surprising, exciting, amazing, frightening and even shocking.

Today, the Andersen Museum has become a part of the city, or rather its historical district, where the same small and bright houses flaunt, equally bright flowers grow under their windows, the pavement is paved in the old way.

Roskilde Cathedral – the tomb of Danish kings
Christian IV Chapel at Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark Slaunger
The Cathedral in Roskilde is the main cathedral of the country, a vivid example of the Gothic style, a world cultural heritage site, and for travelers a good option for what to see in Denmark. The cathedral, which became the burial place of all Danish kings, is located in eastern Denmark, on the island of Zeeland.
It is the first Gothic cathedral built of brick, and the way it was built served as an example for the spread of this architectural style throughout northern Europe. The construction was started in 1170 by the founder of Copenhagen, Bishop Absalon. In the 13th century, the construction of the temple was continued, and it was then that the originally Romanesque style was replaced by the Gothic features characteristic of that time – two spiers erected at that time serve as confirmation of this.
Since the 14th century, the cathedral has become the burial place of Danish monarchs , who from that moment began to be buried in richly decorated sarcophagi, both on the territory of the cathedral and outside it.
The history of the altar in the cathedral deserves special attention – it was originally intended for another castle – Frederiksborg, but was installed here. The paintings of the altar convey scenes of the life of Jesus Christ, from birth to crucifixion.
It was thanks to the appearance of this cathedral that Roskilde began to be considered the spiritual capital of Denmark.

The largest and most famous of the runestones can be seen in the village of Jelling, on the territory of the Jelling Church between the burial mounds. Two opposing religions seem to have converged here at one point, and two stones are living evidence of this: one of them is completely carved with pagan inscriptions, the other with Christian inscriptions. The creation of the small pagan stone dates back to around 955 AD, the creation of the large Christian stone no earlier than 965. A color copy of the latter can be seen today in the National Museum.

South view of the sandy beach of Cape Grenen on the Jutland peninsula
Northern Denmark, whose photo reflects the unique features of its landscape, has its own interesting places. One of these places is Cape Grenen, located a few kilometers from the city of Skagen. The peculiarity of the geographical position of the cape is that it is located at the junction of two currents, which formed a long sandy spit, going deep into the sea for 4 kilometers. Due to the unusual position, the cape has long been considered a dangerous place, which is characterized by very high sea waves, so the first lighthouse was erected here in the 16th century. The local flora and fauna are no less peculiar – for example, Grenen is an ideal place to observe the migrations of birds of prey.

That is why the natural attractions of Finland, Sweden and Denmark have their own unique features. So, the rocky coast of the island of Mön is a characteristic monument of Danish nature. The unique feature of this area is the bright white tint of the rocks: over millions of years, the dead mollusks gradually formed a chalk layer on the ocean floor, which later came to the surface as a result of the movement of giant glaciers and formed a hill. Sea waters undermined the coast, forming an amazing miracle of nature – snow-white rocks.
