Kompagnistræde

Corner of Kompagnistræde and Knabrostræde district here provides a typical picture of classicism Copenhagen, where rows of houses in the weak curvature still know nothing of the medieval streets. Here are just a few spots from the time before the fire, for example, on the little square where streets intersect, and every corner types are represented: The sharp corner of the baroque house smigfagene from just after the fire and the round corner, which was characteristic of post- bombardment in 1807. The neighborhood is characterized by the specifically tuned quietness that reigns in the modest environments with classical town houses. Instead of making serious geometric constructions, which is like a net over entire neighborhoods, as in Frederiksstaden with Amalienborg Palace as the center of the city characterized by more isolated images that can be perceived in a glance or a short hike.
