🇩🇰 DINAMARCA / DENMARK - NYHAVN ________________________________________ * 👀 Nyhavn is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen, Denmark. Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse, it is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants. The canal harbours many historical wooden ships. Nyhavn was constructed by King Christian V from 1670 to 1673, dug by Swedish prisoners of war from the Dano-Swedish War 1658–1660. It is a gateway from the sea to the old inner city at Kongens Nytorv (King's Square), where ships handled cargo and fishermens' catch. It was notorious for beer, sailors, and prostitution. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen lived at Nyhavn for some 18 years.
The first bridge across Nyhavn opened on 6 February 1875. It was a temporary wooden footbridge. It was replaced by the current bridge in 1912. As ocean-going ships grew larger, Nyhavn was taken over by internal Danish small vessel freight traffic. After World War II land transport took over this role and small vessel traffic disappeared from the Port of Copenhagen, leaving Nyhavn largely deserted of ships.
In the mid-1960s, the Nyhavn Society was founded with the aim of revitalising the area. In 1977, Nyhavn was inaugurated as a veteran ship and museum harbour by Copenhagen’s Lord Mayor Egon Weidekamp. In 1980 Nyhavn quay was pedestrianised; it had been used as a parking area in the previous years which had coincided with a dwindling of harbour activities. Since then it has become a popular spot for tourists and locals alike, serving the function of a square according to architects Jan Gehl and Lars Gemzøe. __________________________________ #paulo_always_travelling#melhoresdestinos#quetalviajar#globetrotter#amoviajar#loucosporviagem#travelgram#turistando#tripadvisor#instatrip#kopenhag#awesome_destinations#travelguide#europa#ig_cameras_united#ilovedenmark#melhoresdestinos#europe_gallery#viajarfazbem#places_wow#lonelyplanet#roamtheplanet#copenhagen#dinamarca#ig_copenhagen#kopenhagen#instatravelgram#copenhague#denmark 🇩🇰 #madeindenmar

I stayed in Aarhus for 6 hours...so there is a few places, which I can recommend you to visit.
🇩🇰The Aros... it's one of largest art museums in Europe...The entrance for children under 18 is for free,but the price for the adult will be 18 euros,for students 14 euros... Actually there's a big reason to visit this museum and it's the massive circular skywalk called "Your rainbow panorama".
🇩🇰Salling Rooftop... If you like to look at the city from...then you definitely need to go here and the entry is free for everyone
🇩🇰Old Town...is an open-air museum consisting of more than 75 historic buildings collected from across Denmark...Dating from the 16th to the early 20th century...and everyone has such a great opportunity to see and feel what was people life like hundreds years ago.
