Saint Annae Square

Sankt Annæ Plads was established in the 1750s in connection with the construction of the new quarter, Frederiksstaden. The canal lying here at that time (running parallel with Nyhavn) was covered, and in that way the square had its present boundaries between Bredgade and Kvæsthusgade.The square was not planted up until 1852. The then recently founded Improvement Society of the Capital of Copenhagen won on this occasion one its first main issues. In 1954 the equestrian statue of King Christian X was raised in Sankt Annæ Plads.
