The city is situated on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand. The city is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark. Copenhagen's economy has seen rapid developments in the service sector, especially through initiatives in information technology, pharmaceuticals and clean technology.  Copenhagen's landmarks such as Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid Statue, the Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces, Rosenborg Castle Gardens, Frederik's Church, and many museums, restaurants and nightclubs are significant tourist attractions. With a number of bridges connecting the various districts, the cityscape is characterized by parks, promenades and waterfronts.
