Nikolaj Udstillingsbygning (Nikolaj Exhibition Hall) was actually a church, which was built in the thirteenth century. Since 1917, the building has only been used for exhibitions of different kinds, the reason being partly the beautiful, bare interior, which has proved perfect for showing art. The building has three galleries, including one in the tower. The exhibitions consist primarily of photographic art, and throughout the years, Nikolaj Udstillingsbygning has become known for its often provocative art. The subtle copper spire of Nikolaj Udstillingsbygning is a well-known silhouette in the Copenhagen skyline. When Nikolaj Kirke was built, the harbour of Copenhagen stretched as far as the foot of the church. With its direct view over the harbour, the church was named after the seamen's patron saint, Nikolaj. Now, the square surrounding the church is called Nikolaj Plads, and is a very attractive area behind Strøget.
