Denmark is a Scandinavian country comprising the Jutland Peninsula and numerous islands.it linked to nearby Sweden via the Öresund bridge. Copenhagen, its capital, is home to royal palaces and colorful Nyhavn harbor, plus the Tivoli amusement park and the iconic “Little Mermaid” statue.Odense is writer Hans Christian Andersen’s hometown, with a medieval core of cobbled streets and half-timbered houses. Denmark’s second biggest city is one of the examples where ‘old meets new’. Apart from being a vibrant student city and a home to old town museum preserved in the historic city core, Aarhus has some of the most interesting modern architecture. In the very heart of the city you will find its top attraction, ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, which offers a unique experience of gazing at the city from the rainbow panorama. With over 300 events planned in the close future, Aarhus has been named the European Capital of Culture 2017.Denmark is not only the happiest country on earth, but it’s home to the world’s best restaurant and lots of fairytale cottages along the 7,000km of coastline.
