Nyhavn Is The Old Haven Of Copenhagen

The 

Nyhavn

(or New Haven) in 

Copenhagen

 is reminiscent of Bryggen, the old waterfront in Bergen, Norway. A new small canal, that acted as a gateway for ships to the center of Copenhagen, was built in 1671. Since then, a new haven has been built and the older haven has become an attraction of Copenhagen.
Every few minutes boats depart from the 

Nyhavn

pier and sail through the straits and canals of Copenhagen.
An anchor in the middle of the square was built in memory of Danish sailors who died in World War II.
The former port district has become one of the most popular places in town. Thousands of locals and tourists rest on the pier of the Nyhavn:
There are dozens of moored sailing ships along the pier, both old and new in New Haven in Copenhagen.
Street musicians perform on the waterfront of the Nyhavn.
