Beautiful Bridge in Copenhagen Celebrates the City's Maritime Heritage

(Photo: Anders Sune Berg)

Whenever I see photos of Copenhagen, I want to go there.

For hundreds of years, the capital of Denmark has been one of the great trading centers of the world. Ships from many nations touch there, so it is appropriate that this footbridge reflects that heritage.

This is the Cirkelbroen bridge, a gift to the people of Copenhagen from the non-profit Nordea-Fonden. Architect Olafur Eliasson designed it with high masts and lines to remind viewers of the great sailing vessels that once poured into and out of the harbor. He expects that daily traffic will be about 5,000 people. You can see more photos of it at Contemporist.
