Copenhagen's Nyhavn Canal
The Nyhavn Canal was built 300 years ago to provide a wharf
for handling ship cargo in the heart of Copenhagen.
Boats still tie up at Nyhavn, which is now crowded with
tourists rather than cargo.
Nyhavn has emerged as another of Copenhagen's postcard
signatures, in competition with the Little Mermaid.
Copenhagen's popular canal tours always include Nyhavn.
