Denmark

Vikings, freedom of speech, prosperity, Nobel Prizes, all of these and much more are defining elements of the small-sized nation of Denmark.

The first country to legalise same-sex marriages, Denmark’s open-mindedness and freedom of speech are definitely essential factors in the population’s general wellbeing. Considered the happiest in the world, the Danes are setting the bar so high in anything from education to human rights, health care or democracy that, try as they might, most countries in the world cannot catch up with them.

From the mighty Vikings to present day, there is a certain stamina that makes these people succeed in everything they set up to do. And they also play fair, given the registered lowest rate of corruption worldwide. Quite impressive, right? Beyond the socio-political aspects, you’ll be pleased with such an environmentally-friendly country, where bikes outnumber cars, where the air in the capital is as fresh as in the countryside and the majestic castles seem to be taken straight from Andersen’s pages.

With an array of more than 100 islands, out of which North Jutland with its sandy beaches is the most popular, the Danish coastline is longer than the Great Wall of China. Overall, once in Denmark, you’ll love how neat and clean everything looks: from the major shopping streets, like the busy Stroget to the hippie neighbourhoods, such as Christiania Freetown, everything is picture perfect. Copenhagen, the capital, will delight you with its richly decorated and beautifully preserved castles, such as Kronborg, known as Hamlet’s castle, or the monumental Rosenborg, then it will get your head spinning in the amusement park at Tivoli Gardens, and bing you back to your senses with a walk in the Nyhavn harbour. The Danish countryside is one not to be missed: it abounds in charming little villages with cobbled streets with a fairy-tale air, while wild deer roam over the grassy fields in plain daylight.

If you want to immerse in the true essence of Danish music, then put on a hat, take your date and head to the Copenhagen Opera House. Let yourselves delighted by a Denmark’s most emblematic composer Carl Nielsen through his symphonies filled with dramatic tension.

From the delicate fragrance of the Marguerite Daisy, Denmark’s national flower, to the salty smell of waves beating against the North Jutland shores, the fresh scent of fir trees or the tempting aroma of layered pastries, Denmark’s will not go by unnoticed.

Consisting mainly of meat, Danish cuisine gives you plenty of options to choose from. For an on-the-go meal, grab some smørrebrød, the local open sandwiches made of rye bread topped with fish, meat and cheese. A heavier, much more consistent meal, for when you really need a good refill, would be stegt flæsk, fried pork, the national Danish dish. Quench your thirst with a glass of Tuborg or Carlsberg beer and for the dessert you can have any of their exquisite pastries or their absolutely delicious butter cookies that will literally melt in your mouth. Don’t worry you’ll put on a pound or two, the amount of cycling you’ll do here will more than compensate for that.
