Nyhavn II

After the success of my first picture of the famous Nyhavn, I would like the show you today another picture from this place, but from a different POV and in different weather circumstances.
This photo was taken from the bridge over Nyhavn, connecting Holberggade and Toldbodgade.

Nyhavn, that means "New Harbour" is very popular among tourists as well as the locals because of the many bars and restaurants. It is located in the heart of Copenhagen near the square Kongens Nytorv.
Nyhavn is one of the oldest parts of Copenhagen, it was built by King Christian V in the second half of the 17th century and was in that time called Nyhavnskanalen (New Harbour's Canal). The houses at Nyhavn are more than 300 years old and the oldest one is Nyhavn no.9, that dates back to 1681.
Fairytale-writer H.C. Andersen (1805-1875) is a famous resident of Nyhavn.

It was taken during the wonderful "Indian Summer" we had last year.
I hope you like this summer picture!
