Did you know that Denmark has 406 islands and 4,550 miles of coastline, and that the highest point in the country soars at… 558 feet above sea level? Though diminutive on the world map, this nation has a big personality, a long and colorful history, and a distinctive place in the modern world (from innovative interior design to wind turbine technology).
Denmark is one of the world's oldest monarchies, with a history that stretches back to the Viking Age, circa A.D. 1000. And the name “Denmark,” of Viking origins, has been around at least since A.D. 900, when it was carved into the rune stones in the settlement of Jelling. The inscriptions tell the story of how Danish King Harald Bluetooth conquered Norway and Christianized the Danes.
And best of all, survey after survey shows that the Danes are among the happiest people on Earth.
