13 Dragon Spire on Børsen in Copenhagen, Denmark

Take a close look at the tower on the Børsen or Old Stock Exchange. The intertwining dragons on the 197 foot spire represent the Kalmar Union. This was a close relationship among the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The tower was finished in 1625 and replaced in 1775. According to legend, it has protected the building from multiple fires that destroyed its neighbors on Slotsholmen over the centuries.
