Feb. 21, 2016: Copenhagen's Colorful Nyhavn


Copenhagen's colorful Nyhavn waterfront, once a fearsome rough-and-tumble redlight district, has become a popular spot for tourists and locals, with townhouses, restaurants and small boats.


Originally, the channel connecting the town center to the sea was built by 17th century prisoners of war from Sweden. As ships got bigger, it served smaller ships. In the 1970s, projects transformed the area to the attraction it is today.
