Denmark

Description of Denmark

Denmark is located in Scandinavia and the main part of the country’s land consists of a Jutland, which is a peninsula that sits just north of Germany. There are also a number of islands that are a part of the country. This includes two major islands, Funen and Zealand.

Denmark is a prosperous modern nation and is a participant in the general economic and political integration of Europe. However, the country has chosen to not be a part of several of the Maastrict Treaty portions including the monetary system and other issues that concern internal affairs.

Denmark is the home of one of the most popular toys of the world, Lego. The country is home to the Legoland theme park and is one of the best places in the world to buy this great toy.

Architecture

The highest point in Europe is located in Denmark, but what this entails is a bit uncertain. The highest natural point seems to be Ejer Baunehoj. This is located in the Lake District. Just 3 kilometers away there is the Yding Skovhoj, which is 2 meters higher because of an ancient burial mound. The actual highest point in the country is the Sosterhoj Transmission tower which is 213 meters tall.

Culture

Sports are quite popular in the country and football is the supreme sport. Football is considered the national sport closely followed by handball, gymnastics, and golf.

Hygge is another trait of the Danish culture. This translates to mean snug or cozy. Hygge typically involves a low key dinner at home with conversations over candlelight with close family and friends. The word is often used to describe social interactions that take place in the country.

Another important aspect of the Danish culture is modesty. This is prominent in the behavior patterns of the people as well as in the design of the cities and buildings. The designs are minimalistic and functional more than being flashy.

The country often receives praise for being one of the greenest in the world. Apart from the many bikes that are found on the streets, you will find that the Danish people are fairly nonchalant about the environment. They believe that environmentalism is a collective responsibility of the people. There have been several reforms put in place by the Social Democratic leadership that have made the country one of the most energy efficient of the world. This has resulted in the technological advancements being one of the largest exports of the country. Some examples include home insulation, wind turbines, and thermostats.

The green innovations do have an impact on those who travel to the country. There is a cost for plastic bags that is non-refundable so it is best to bring your own bags when shopping for groceries. Bottles and cans can be returned for a deposit. This is available wherever these products are sold. The toilets have a half flush and a full flush function. You will get to figure out which one you should use. There is about a 100% tax on gas, which makes the price around $8 a gallon and sometimes even more. In addition, most counties will require you to separate your waste into burnable and biological containers.
