The little mermaid

Copenhagen, Denmark has a lot to offer tourists. The artist Edvard Eriksen made a bronze statue portraying The little Mermaid from Hans Christian Andersens’ fairy tale. The small and unimposing statue is displayed by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade and has been a tourist attraction since 1913 and is a Copenhagen Icon.

Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales have become embedded in the west’s culture by being readily accessible to children, but still presenting lessons in virtue. April 2nd is Andersen’s birthday. This day is also celebrated as International Children’s book Day. The little mermaid is one of his more famous works, published in 1837 and it has inspired plays, ballets and films.
