Denmark the gateway of Scandinavia. The heart of Viking culture and innovation. Now in modern times it continues as one of the world leaders of innovations in architecture (beautiful classic Scandinavian combined with interesting modern), engineering, medicine, gastronomy, eco-culture and so much more. Denmark has been voted the “happiest country in the world” for a number of consecutive years. The reality of that is up for discretion. One thing I did observe in the capital Copenhagen was the lack of noise, though with much calmness, cleanness and most importantly orderliness; which was just impressive beyond all. The queues were neat of people with enough space and not crowding/shoving like seen in other large cities, same thing on escalators, people in no rush stand to the right usually at least one step apart from the next and people on the left walking up with steps without chaos. Traffic is no issue, even bike traffic is controlled by wide bike paths in the streets. Impressive for a capital city; it was so peaceful, makes the Danish society very pleasant.
Also in this creative country is the home of one of my and many other’s favorite childhood fairytale writers Hans Christian Andersen. Hints of his world can be seen everyday in a glimpse in Denmark. There are castles throughout the country including one in the center of Copenhagen. About a third of the country is made up of islands connecting by bridges for the most part and then the mainland north of Germany is Jütland. There is much farming flatlands in the country, with many beautiful trees, flowers, lakes and ocean.
