The Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is the master mind behind The Circle Bridge. The bridge consists of five circles, all of different sizes that overlap, giving visitors a way to cross the canal of Christianshavn while also forcing them to slow down and pause while doing it. The Black Diamond, part of Denmark's Royal Library, is directly across from the bridge, but the boat traffic just in front—and under it—is just as mesmerizing.
