It was a dream came true when I visited all the Scandinavian capitals last 2013. Thanks to the wonderful cruise trips I experienced last year, it did finally happened seeing those lovely capital cities in Scandinavia. One of the cities we visited was Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark.
One of the sights I experienced there was the Nyhavn, literally known as New Harbour. I could still remember, I and my friend had a lunch in one of the restaurants and cafes in this area.

Nyhavn is literally known as New Harbour. It is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen. Here you can find a lot of brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants. The New Harbour stretches from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse.
It was spring season when we visited the Copenhagen. The weather was still a bit cold that time but the sun was shining so brightly. You can see it at the image I took from our visit. If you just want to relax while sipping a cup of coffee, Nyhavn is indeed a place to go. You can sit in one of its cafes and restaurants and also enjoy the scenery.
The Nyhavn is also known as "heritage harbour", where you can find many historical wooden ships at the canal.
