Denmark is the most southern of the Scandinavian countries. Greenland and the Faroe Islands are dependencies of Denmark, partially financially but with a limited amount of autonomy in their governing assemblies. The highest point in the country reaches to 90 metre in all, hardly Everest.
The Danish capital can only be described as cool. Established in the 10th Century AD Copenhagen was first a Viking fishing port. It is the largest city in Denmark with a population of just over 777,000. Visit the Christiansborg Palace, Frederick’s Church and the Tivoli Gardens. Plan a visit to the elegant Royal Theatre with its excellent programmes of ballet, opera and theatre. Sit outside a café or bar on the waterfront with a cocktail or some Danish street food in 17th Century Nyhavn and gaze at the town houses and boats.
This amazing bridge connecting Denmark to Sweden seems like it will never end. It was a joint venture project, partly funded by the Danish Government and is maintained by the Danish Rail Authority.
Nowhere in the country is over 50 kilometres from the sea and there are 7,000 kilometres of coastline to explore. If you are keen at fishing you might like to stay in a fishing lodge. Or you might choose to wander along unspoilt white sands on Sandervig Beach in West Jutland instead.
