Photographer's Note

Between Raadhuspladsen and Kongens Nytorv, you can wander along Copenhagen's famous pedestrian shopping street called Strøget, which is also a popular venue for street entertainment.

Strøget is not a name of a specific street, but a connection between the west and east part of Copenhagen.In-between there are three squares.This is one of them: Gammeltorv.

Gammeltorv, the Old Square, is just as the name says, the oldest square in Copenhagen. Already in 1100 it was a marketplace where farmers sold their products. The name Gammeltorv dates back to the 15th century.

You see the Caritas Fountain: an exquisite golden bronze fountain from 1608, considered to be one of the world's finest Renaissance masterpieces.
