Copenhagen's most famous tourist attraction, the Little Mermaid sits on a rock overlooking the harbour. Created by Edward Eriksen in 1913 who was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale. The model for the Mermaid was dancer Ellen Price. The statue's head was stolen in 1964 and although police hunted for several years, neither the perpetrator nor the head were found. The head has been replaced by a replica but jokers still occasionally try to saw it off.

In addition to the famous bronze statue of the Little Mermaid, Changdi Park also has the equally famous Gai Feien Fountain, which contains a long history of Nordic mythology. The Geifion Fountain consists of a group of bronzes, including the four gods of the Feion and the plow.
Gai Feien is a goddess in Norse mythology. This group of statues tells the story of a goddess and the island of Zealand where Copenhagen is located: because the goddess was ordered to plant all the land in one day. She had to turn four sons into four bulls and finally ploughed the island in one day, and the island of Zealand was owned by her.
Near the fountain is the famous St. Ebinkirche, the Holy Communion of England. Built in 1885, the designer Arthur Blomfield imitates the architectural style of an imitation British Gothic church. The church has a unique taste and a local flair, which is well worth a visit.
The church is not very big, but it is very British. To enter the church, you must obey the order of the church. You can't smoke, you can't scream loudly, you can't litter, and the church is clean and hygienic. Before entering, the staff will ask where you are from, and then give you an introduction to the church. Fortunately, there is a Chinese introduction, and you will pray in good faith.
Changdi Park is still quite long. It takes half a day to walk around and spend all the way. It is also convenient to rent a bicycle.
The Little Mermaid, the symbol of Copenhagen, arrived in Copenhagen, and the Little Mermaid is a must-see attraction. It was created by Danish sculptor Edward Eriksson according to Andersen's Fairy Tales, only 1.5 meters high. On the way, I will see a beautiful park. Basically, people who are with you all go to see the little mermaid. Despite being psychologically prepared, I was shocked by the number of tourists. Surely, many people had to line up to take photos with the statue. Under the clear blue sky, the mermaid of the human fishtail sits on a granite, very quiet and beautiful. However, in the morning, it has more backlighting. It is recommended that friends who want to take pictures will come in the afternoon.
