Still in Business

The old Stock Exchange is a building on Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It was built by Christian IV in 1619–1640 and is the oldest stock exchange in Denmark. It is particularly known for its Dragon Spire shaped as the tails of four dragons twined together, reaching a height of 56 meters. If you search for it on this blog you will find a few great photographs of the building elsewhere.

This is the street view.

Today's word is "Børsen" and means The Stock Exchange.
