Copenhagen - serene and beautiful
Perhaps the best known symbol of Copenhagen is the Little Mermaid, gracefully looking out to harbour. In many ways it is an excellent symbol of the city. It is human in scale, discreet, serene, and rather beautiful, just like Copenhagen itself. That’s what we mean by being apt. Paris might have its Eiffel Tower, London its Big Ben, Rome the Coliseum, but Copenhagen has a human face! And if you like things on a human scale, then Copenhagen is for you.
There’s more of course. Though architecturally much of today’s Copenhagen goes back to the 18th and 19th centuries, the waterfront being a case in point, the city itself dates back to the 11th century.
