Nyhavn is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was notorious for beer, sailors, and prostitution. Nyhavn was constructed by King Christian V from 1670 to 1673, dug by Swedish war prisoners from the Dano-Swedish War 1658-1660. It is a gateway from the sea to the old inner city of Copenhagen, where ships handled cargo and fishermens' catch. Today you will find a lot of bars and restaurants in Nyhavn and If you look carefully you will still be able to find an old sailor in a dark bar. In the right mood he might even tell you a story for a beer.
