Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands in Norway, Shetland, and the North Atlantic between Iceland, are 18 islands covering an area of 1399 square km. In 1035, they became Norwegian possessions. In 1397, they came under Danish jurisdiction. Denmark, in 1948, made them an autonomous district. With a population of 48,000, the residents are mostly of Scandinavian descent. Residents are Christian. Faroese is the official language. Danish is generally spoken. The currency is the Faluokelang. The capital is Tˇrshavn (Thorshavn).

With an oceanic climate, annual precipitation is about 1600 mm. With rich fishery resources, the economy is mainly based around fishing and fish processing. With lush pastures, keeping sheep, cattle, and horses is the primary agricultural activity.

Copenhagen
A Nordic city in the eastern part of Zealand, with Sweden across ěresund opposite the Malm÷ harbor. Shipping brought economic prosperity. A clean and beautiful city, Copenhagen is a patchwork of tall modern buildings alongside ancient churches and castle-palace pavilions. The Old City is the birthplace of Copenhagen, but also the present city center. There are many ancient palaces, the most famous of which is Kelisiqin castle, formerly the Royal Palace and now the seat of Parliament. There is also now live in the royal family and the opening up of Rosenberg Fort Almeirim so. Bronze sculpture in many urban areas makes this city poetic.

Hans Christian Andersen
Born in 1805 and died 1875, Andersen was a famous 19th century Danish fairy tale writer, founder of the world's fairy tales. His works have deep beauty and comedy. Andersen's work is divided into early, middle, and later periods. His early works of fantasy are full of a beautiful, optimistic spirit. Representative works include "Daughter of the Sea" and the "Ugly Duckling." In the works of his middle period, the component of reality is relatively more prominent, lashing ugly and praising good and the pursuit of the good life. These works include "The Little Match Girl" and "Snow White." His later works focus on the underlying description of the fate of people's misery. These works, in a dark, low tone, include "Dream under a willow" and "She is a waste." The International Children's Alliance in 1954 established the "International Hans Christian Andersen Award"; this award is the highest honor in children's literature.

Little Mermaid
Waterfront Park is located in the vicinity of Copenhagen. The sculptor Eriksson, in 1912, cast the famous Hans Christian Andersen "Mermaid" heroine. "The Little Mermaid" statue is very fine and well-proportioned. With the long hair and the lower fishy extremities, "Mermaid" sits quietly on the rocks all day, staring at the sea and seeming deep in thought and hope. She has become a Danish national icon.
