Gefion Fountain | Copenhagen, Denmark

Gefion Fountain | Copenhagen, Denmark

The wishing well is officially the biggest monument in Copenhagen and tells a story about the country’s mythology with its sculptures. The Fountain shows a scene, in which the Aesir Damsel Gefion cuts a trench in between the Island of Zealand and Sweden with her plow, which is led by her three sons who had been turned into bulls. She cuts Zealand off the mainland forever and created the biggest Island in Denmark.

Actually, I could just follow my nose and was not surprised to encounter many drunken bodies on the Plaza de la Virgen.
