"Is it worth it?" I ask the ticket vendor behind the window.
"If I had never seen Tivoli I would certainly pay the entry fee to walk around."
I was not disappointed.
The inspiration for Disneyland, was created in 1843 when Tivoli's founder successfully petitioned the Danish king (not Hamlet, he was dead) by arguing that, "when the people are amusing themselves, they do not think about politics." He was instantly granted 15 acres.
You'd think that Iran would invest in better entertainment than veiled women and fiery Anti-Israeli speeches, instead of arresting people in the for dancing in the street to the song, "Happy."
But back to Tivoli. It's absolutely impossible not to be enchanted with the place. It's cute, charming, beautiful, well kept, has a friendly joyous atmosphere, and is located right in the heart of Copenhagen. It truly was the only thing in Denmark I would describe as a "must visit," and just look at the photos and video below to get a feel of what you'll find there on a warm summer day,
