To explore Denmark is to commune with the sea.
Every road, path and vista reveals the singular character of this maritime country, formed by the Jutland Peninsula and 443 islands — only 72 of which are inhabited! No wonder people say that the Danes are born with their feet in the water, like their national emblem, the Little Mermaid, whose bronze silhouette greets the boats arriving in the port of Copenhagen. Her inventor, the author Hans Christian Andersen, described her in these words: “The youngest was the prettiest of them all; her skin was as clear and delicate as a rose-leaf, and her eyes as blue as the deepest sea; but, like all the others, she had no feet, and her body ended in a fish’s tail.”
