Artist's Description

FEATURED in Harbour Life

An old part of Copenhagen, the name are “Nyhavn”, means New Harbor, right now it’s a old harbor.
A great Night Life, good atmosphere, a place in Copenhagen one must visit.

Nyhavn is a colourful 17th century waterfront, canal and popular entertainment district in Copenhagen, Denmark. Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbourfront just south of the Royal Playhouse, it is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and numerous bars, cafés and restaurants. Serving as a heritage harbour, the canal is packed with old wooden ships.

Nyhavn was constructed by King Christian V from 1670-73, dug by Swedish war prisoners from the Dano-Swedish War 1658–1660, as a gateway from the sea to the old inner city at Kongens Nytorv, where ships would unload their cargo and the fishermen their daily catch. Notorious for beer, sailors, and prostitution, the area developed an infamous reputation. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen lived at Nyhavn 18 for some years.
