Kongens Nytorv

Kongens Nytorv (lit. English: King's New Square) is a public square in Copenhagen, Denmark, centrally located at the end of the pedestrian street Strøget. The finest and largest square of the city, it was laid out by Christian V in 1670 in connection with a major extension of the fortified city, and has an equestrian statue of him at its centre. The initiative moved the centre of the city from the medieval area around Gammeltorv, at that time a muddy medieval marketplace, to a cobbled new square with a garden complex, inspired by the Royal city planning seen in Paris from the early 17th century.

Important buildings facing the square include the Charlottenborg Palace from 1671, the Thott Palace from 1683 (now the French Embassy), and the Royal Danish Theater from 1874.
