Copenhagen, Denmark

Picture I took of my sister Rose in Copenhagen.

Copenhagen at sunset. The buildings are grand, elegant, and rich in history.
A typical view of Copenhagen, as seen from Town Hall Square.
Amaliehaven fountain (no water at the time), just outside the royal residence. Across the harbor is the new Copenhagen Opera House which was still under construction then. It opened in January 1, 2005.
Me and the Little Mermaid. It is surprisingly a small sculpture but is probably the most recognizable symbol of Copenhagen and Denmark.
Tivoli Gardens, one of the landmarks of Copenhagen, provides leisure activities to citizens. It first opened in 1843.
Me at Christianborg Castle which served as the royal palace until 1794 but now houses the Danish parliament. The right wing of the building (not showing in the picture) was being repaired at the time this photo was taken.
Cyclists are a common sight in Copenhagen and they share the roads almost equally with four-wheel vehicles. Wide and ubiquitous bicycle lanes encourage locals to prefer this energy saving mode of transportation.
Plaza at the center of Stroget - the car-free, pedestrian strolling area of Copenhagen that features shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. It is reputedly the longest pedestrian mall and serves as a model of its kind in the world.
A ship at Amaliehaven's waterfront. The ship's majestic presence is a testament to Denmark's great naval history.
Borsen (Stock Exchange) is a unique Renaissance structure built in the 1620's. Its most striking feature is the spire which consists of four dragon tails twisted around each other. It now serves as headquarters of Copenhagen Chamber of Commerce.
Part of Frederiksholms Kanal that surrounds the Christiansborg Slotsplads, the small atoll where Christiansborg Castle is located.
Me at Tivoli Gardens. It is a "must" destination for most tourists and looks magnificent at night when lighted.
This shot was taken outside Christianborg. The spire of Nikolaj Kirken (St. Nicholas Church) is seen in the distance. Built in the 16th century, it no longer functions as a church but is now a contemporary art gallery.
Hans Christian Andersens Boulevard, the main thouroughfare in downtown Copenhagen named after the country's favorite son who wrote "The Little Mermaid".
The statue of King Frederik the Fifth at the center of Amalienborg - the current residence of the Danish Royal Family. Amalienborg is made up of four almost identical rococo palais.
Radhuspladsen, the central city square and the main terminus for the local bus network.
The Little Mermaid was a present from brewer Carl Jacobsen (The Carlsberg Breweries) to Copenhagen. It is based on the character from Danish poet Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale of the same name.
Me and the famous Jens Olsen Astronomical Clock. This masterpiece housed in Copenhagen City Hall consists of 15,448 individual parts and took 12 years to finish.
