During our walk around the walls of Dubrovnik, I noticed that old-style boat. I realized that it perfectly fits the medieval landscape. Although it appeared to be a touristic boat, that didn’t decrease the charm of the scene. So I pointed the camera with zoom lens to that direction and I shot this photo, which reminds me more of some renaissance painting rather than a picture from a modern Croatian city.

Originally the branch canal Nyhavn was trenched in 1673 to connect the marketplace Kongens Nytorv to the busy port of Copenhagen in order to boost the trade. Even though Nyhavn never went on to be a big port, due to its limited size and capacity it still led to a lot of businessmen settling down along the promenade. The typical colorful gabled houses were mostly built in the 18th and 19th century and are one of the most important sights in the Danish capital today.
