Denmark is a bit of a mystery sitting all the way up there in the north. Its happenings mysterious, it's people apparently some of the happiest in the world and that put together makes it a place to visit.
The country has grown significantly in the past hundred years. It has held a number of agricultural sites since 3900 BC and in common imaginations it is often associated with stoic (or barbaric -whatever your fancy) viking sailing across land in search of bold new places.
The country is also associated with forward-thinking and a place where liberal freedoms are granted to its citizens far before other places in the World. Part of this forward-thinking may have to do with some of the great names that were born or lived in the country such as Soren Kierkegaard and Niels Bohr - both of whom you can get to know better when visiting one of Denmark's many spaces of culture and learning.
Denmark is located on the top of the Jutland peninsula and is right across the water from Sweden. The winter season tends to be mild with temperatures being as low as 0 degrees. Meanwhile, the summers are relatively relaxed with conditions going up to 16 degrees for the most part. The country is a predominantly urban country and is mostly flat, thus making some spaces prone to flooding.
The capital of the country is Copenhagen and it is a joyous place full of festivals and enjoyment. The city is home to most of the country's most prominent cultural assets such as the Royal Danish Ballet and Royal Danish Theater.
The Egeskov Castle in Kvaerndrup is also amazing and interesting to spot. This is a large space that is very attractive and interesting to spot. The Frederiksberg Have green gardens are also fascinating and worth exploring. Located not too far away from the Copenhagen Zoo. The Hans Christian Andersen house in Odense is also a popular place to check out.
Denmark has close to 400 islands but a majority of them are not inhabited. A great time to visit Denmark is winter and strangely enough for its winter swimming festivals when brave sould dive into the frigid water. The country is infamous for its population of ice cold water swimming enthusiasts.
Just remember when you are visiting that despite Denmark being a part of the European Union it has its own currency called the Danish krone. As always Denmark dances to its own beat - so come join (especially in the summer)!
