You Are Here Ornament – Denmark

This is You Are Here Ornament – Denmark, a smaller version of the bigger mug released a year ago. It has a light blue string and features some of the points of interest and symbols from one of the oldest countries in Europe:
– Multicolored row houses became a trademark of the old city architecture of some countries from Nothern Europe. My understanding, it is Nyhavn Canal which is depicted in particular. The boat in front of the houses might be additional proof for that. The canal was built in Copenhagen between 1670 to 1675 and is now entertainment district. Back in the days, it served as a gateway from the sea to the old inner city.
– Great Belt Bridge (East Bridge) connects the Danish islands of Zealand and Funen. There are many bridges in Denmark due to the numerous islands, however, this bridge is special in a way that it has the world’s third-longest main span (1 mile).
– The Mute Swan is the national bird of Denmark since 1984. It is believed that it is the main character in “The Ugly Duckling” which made him popular. Btw, this well-known story was written by Hans Christian Andersen, who was Danish.
– The Jelling stones are large carved runestones with the runic inscriptions on them, located near the town of Jelling. The one from the mug seems to be the largest of those stones, which was raised by king Harald Bluetooth, in memory of his parents.
