10 Holmens Kirke from Holmens Bro in Copenhagen, Denmark

The land on the left, as seen from Holmens Bridge, has had an extensive history. It was an island prior to the 1500s. During the early 16th century, the property was reshaped into a peninsula and was the location of a shipyard commissioned by King Christian III. His successor, Frederick II, then added an anchor forge (factory). The next king of Denmark, Christian IV, converted them into a church in 1619. Over the next 250 years, Holmens Kirke was expanded into today’s appearance.
