This adds one the best “classical” awards. Minor changes by sponsor give us this chance to enjoy the Danes historic mermaid. We visited the statue 2 years ago on a trip to many Baltic countries. The actual statue it is the "essence" of Denmark, still very popular after all these years. Just picture hundreds of tourists (me, too.....) using zoom lenses or holding your camera above your head, to hide those hundreds of tourists. It's a classic image.
