Østerbro is a large district, just east of Nørrebro, that is very diverse; there are both old worn buildings, wide boulevards, embassies and top modern buildings and the national stadium. It is also where Langelinie, the part of the harbour is, where the "little mermaid", the most famous symbol of Copenhagen, is located. In the modern industry harbour there are plans to build skyscrapers and upmarket residential buildings.
"The Little Mermaid" is not big, but it is the most famous symbol of Copenhagen and the most popular tourist attraction. It is just 1.25 m high and was put up at this location in 1913. It has been beheaded several times, and stolen.
Contrasts: 2 Buddhist monks at "the little mermaid". Edvard Eriksen was the sculptor and it is said that Ellen Price was the model, at least for the head.
