  • Kongens Nytorv, the new King's square is a central place is located at the end of Strøget and can be considered the largest square and elegant in the city. On this square overlook many important and beautiful palaces and buildings such as the Royal Theatre, Charlottenborg occupied by the Royal Academy of fine arts, Palace Thott, Embassy of France and the famous Hotel d'Angleterre, one of the most exclusive hotels and ancient Scandinavia. Just north of Kongens Nytorv is located the Nyhavn Canal, with its teeming life, symbol of the city of Copenhagen.

  • The most famous historical square in Copenhagen, we are watched from behind the fence of the construction of the subway. Supper Angleterre hotel directly opposite the new square or Royal square kongens Nytorv is the main and largest area of Copenhagen. It built more than 300 years ago. at kongens Nytorv are concentrated many of the city's attractions. The most famous of them-the Royal theatre and Palace Sharlottenborg. Near Strøget pedestrian street in the Centre of the square stands an equestrian statue depicting King Christian V-it is for his order was built kongens Nytorv. The first statue of the King was made of lead and installed on the area in 1688, but over time the monument started sliding down. In 1946 year lead statue of was replaced by an exact bronze copy.

  • There were renovations undergoing due to metro expansion. It has several hotels and is always full of people coming and going. It has street food carts, markets, cafes and restaurants. Nice and fancy place.
  • We visited here while on a tour of the local area. Big beautiful square - interesting architecture in the buildings surrounding it. They were doing construction work on the big church, I'm thinking it will be beautiful when complete.
  • A very pleasant square. It's a very touristic place too. It is just in front of the Nyhavn. The place is very beautiful full of colourful houses. It's a must see point at the hear of Copenhagen.
  • Magasin du nord lights up the place at night, which is very pretty, but it's currently looks so horribly ugly with the metro work taking over half the place, not to mention all the noise from the builders.
  • Looking forward to the place resumes it former glory. It is and has been a large construction site for the new metro for many years now.
