Amusement Park Bakken
Denmark, Copenhagen

Bakken Park must be visited if only because it is the oldest amusement park in the world. According to legend, in 1583 one girl noticed a spring spouting from the ground in the Royal Deer Park in the north of Copenhagen. And I must say that in those days, healing properties of magic were attributed to any natural source of water. Therefore, thousands of the afflicted stretched to the spring to be healed - and where there are a lot of people, the corresponding infrastructure automatically arises (in modern terms). Gradually, booths were built around the source, where artists played performances for the amusement of the public, inns, then attractions appeared ... To date, Bakken has more than 150 attractions and 2.5 million visitors annually. The highlight of the park (apart from its antiquity and reverence, of course) can be called the performances of Pierrot - the most famous puppet character, as well as performances in the only Danish cabaret in the world. It turns out that earlier Music Halls were widespread throughout the country. However, only the Bakken version has survived to this day - it is already 176 years old!
