Christianshavn is a 3.4 square km residential neighbourhood in Copenhagen. It both borders the main canal through Copenhagen, and has waterways running through it - making it a popular destination with tourist sight-seeing boats. Christianshavn sits on artificial islands - and was founded in the early 17th century by Christian IV - who modelled the area on Dutch cities which he had visited. The harbour is picturesque - and their are a few nice restaurants and bars along the water front. There are numerous historical buildings - such as the Church of Our Saviour, and Christiana may also be found here.
