Built by Christian IV in 1631 (completed in 1795), Nyboder was built to house the growing number of Denmark’s Naval officers and their families. Located in Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen, the rows of ‘Nyboder’ yellow houses still remain in use by officers and personnel of the Danish Navy, Army and Air Force today. In 2006, the law that gave navy personnel priority over civilians who applied to live in Nyboder was abolished and now a mixture of people of all ages and backgrounds live in these enchanting colourful houses.

Girl. 26. Full-time polyglot and part-time notebook scribbler from a gusty and gloomy grotto in Yorkshire. Baptized in the murky waters of the River Calder, I attended a private school run by lions who taught me how to read and roar. After graduating with a combined honours in Lying and Being Late to Everything, I upped and left said gloomy grotto for the tropical jaunts of Latin America in the name of academia and adventure. Currently studying a masters degree in Dog Cuddling and Taking Too Many Ubers. View all posts by escapedfromyorkshire
