Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark

I've posted a few postcards I received from a swap with Chris in Denmark here before. Here's the last one, and a really nice one, too. I just love the colours of these houses!

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. Serving as a "heritage harbour", the canal has many historical wooden ships.

Chris tells me that apartments on the upper floors of these houses sell for between 6 and 8 million US dollars (at the time of our swap, in 2013). Ouch!
