French Madame in Denmark - Part I

The Little Mermaid Statue, Copenhagen

As you may have read on my two blogs, or definitely on my Twitter if you're
following that, I spend 8 days in Denmark last week. I was there for
school-related reasons, attending a congress about psychology which is
my field of study, and I got to see some part of the country and of course
cultural Copenhagen.

I'm starting by showing you The Little Mermaid. There is a statue about
her in Copenhagen, as it was written by Danish fairy tale writer
Hans Christian Andersen who also wrote The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina and
The Snow Queen among others.

She was situated beautifully among water, blossom trees and cruise ships.

Of course we went to Copenhagen's iconic Nyhavn:

And walked along Europe's longest pedestrian shopping street, Strøget:

On the street of Strøget, there was this amazing depart store called
Illum's Bolighus which the Financial Times has dubbed as "the best place
in the world for home furnishings and design".

And it had such lovely wall decor.

Won't you stick by for Part II? Where you can see the rest of Copenhagen,
the countryside of Denmark, and saving the best for last, the food
French Madame ate (& served!)
in Denmark.

Till Then,

Wow, Denmark looks so beautiful. And Ilove the story of the UglyDuckling and the Little Mermaid. I love the history of those old time classic stories. :)

Thank you for the post. Since discovering the blog MyRoyals I am hooked on Denmark, and being an Australian of course I absolutely adore Princess Mary! Xx
