Photo taken in Solvang, California. Added texture. Canon D40.
Solvang is a city in Santa Barbara County, California, United States. It was founded in 1911 on almost 9,000 acres by a group of Danish educators, who traveled west to escape midwestern winters.
The city is home to some bakeries, restaurants, and merchants offering a taste of Denmark in California. The architecture of many of the buildings follows traditional Danish style.
There is a copy of the famous Little Mermaid statue from Copenhagen, as well as one featuring the bust of famed Danish fable writer Hans Christian Andersen. A replica of the Copenhagen observatory was finished in 1991 and can be seen in the city centre.
Gentle rolling hills, windmills, quiet streets, horse drawn carriages, family bicycles, golf courses, horse ranches, wineries, Danish bakeries, authentic Danish costumes worn by some shop keepers, Danish smorgaasbord restaurants, museums of racing and Solvang history, in the Danish atmosphere and architecture are waiting for you.
