Denmark is a kingdom of thriving cities and idyllic landscapes; an innovative society with a green lifestyle

 

Denmark is located in northern Europe and is part of Scandinavia. Denmark consists of the Jutland peninsula, the larger islands of Zealand, Funen, and Lolland-Falster and 429 other named islands between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, 72 of which are inhabited.

Nowhere in Denmark is more than 50 km from the sea. And just a few kilometres from Denmark’s major cities of Aarhus and Copenhagen you find idyllic villages and pristine woodlands and lakes.

Gateway to Europe

Denmark’s location makes it a gateway to other Scandinavian countries and the rest of Europe. Berlin is just an hour’s flight away. London and Paris can be reached in less than two hours. And Barcelona, Rome, Vienna and Prague are all just a few hours flight away.

A Brief Summary of Denmark

If someone searches on Google for the happiest countries in the world, Denmark will be seen in the list among the top positions. Danes are extraordinarily friendly and love togetherness. They recognize one another and enjoy the presence of known ones. They live out the concept of “Hygge” day-in and day-out. It is the concept to indulge in good things around them.

Denmark is also place of innovations. Lego, the world’s most famous brick, was invented in Denmark, and a small Danish town called Billund is said to be its birthplace. Those who love science will know that it was not only LEGO that Danes can take credit for inventing. Danes contributed to medical research that led to the discovery of insulin and are real leaders in innovation in the field of wind power. But that’s not all, it is to be known that an initial map of Google Maps was built by two Danish brothers, and that Danes contributed to the invention of the loudspeaker and Bluetooth.

It would be unfair if we miss out mentioning about Vikings when we talk about Denmark. Some people believe that Danes are as strong as Vikings, and that is the first association with them. We cannot prove them right or wrong but can state for the fact that Denmark is a perfect place to get a taste of the old Viking culture. The country is also popularly known for its bicycle culture. It is not just a cheap exercise! Bikes are an important part of the locals’ everyday life in Denmark and it is one of the nations in the world with the most cyclists.Copenhagen is even called the capital of bikes.

However, there are obstacles too to deal with.Individuals who are reluctant to pay taxes to the government may not like Denmark at all as people spend more than 50% of their income in raising the government fund. Buying cars is beyond most of the people’s ability as the taxes on them are ridiculously high. It is expected to get used to with bicycles.
