Copenhagen, Denmark:
Mermaids, Princesses, and Kings

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and its most populous city, with a bit more than 2 million in its metropolitan area.

It is, today, a very modern city with advanced infrastructure, extraordinary culture, and an exuberant lifestyle—in a quirky Scandinavian sort of way.

It’s a place where almost anything goes, from the classic century-old amusement park of Tivoli Gardens in city center to Hans Christian Andersen and the Little Mermaid—whose statue is within walking distance from our usual docking space.
