Photo Friday: Dragon Tails in Copenhagen






















Copenhagen, Denmark, is sometimes called the "City of Spires" because there are so many apexes belonging to churches and castles in this town.  Certainly, the spire at the top of the old Copenhagen stock exchange building is the most unusual.  It is known as the Dragon Spire, and it is formed by four dragons on their forelegs with their tails intertwined.  Built in the early 1600s, the spire reaches a height of over 180 feet.

Thanks to Debbie Dubrow for hosting Photo Friday at DeliciousBaby.com.

  4. I remember this spire from our family trip to Copenhagen but I had no idea what it was called. Another great city for spires is Istanbul.
