Denmark On a Budget
Denmark Nyhavn Harbour, Old Town Copenhagan
Many people visit Denmark with plans of seeing the Little Mermaid statue, Legoland, or just to enjoy the beautiful landscapes and interact with the friendly Natives. This Scandinavian country is north of Germany and south of Norway and Sweden. The mainland of Denmark, also known as Jutland, is attached to Germany; however, there are also a number of Danish islands. The two major islands are Zealand, home to Copenhagen (the capital), and Funen. These islands sit upon the ostersoen Sea.

While Denmark is part of the European Union, it has opted out of the European monetary system, maintaining its own currency, the krone. Denmark is also part of the Schengen Area, making it less of a hassle to cross its borders from within other countries that are part of this area.

Denmark is a socially, economically and politically progressive country. The country ranks highly with regard to health care, education, democratic governance, human development, and income equality. Not to mention, it is one of the least corrupt countries in the world. On top of all this, Denmark is rich in culture, natural beauty, and stunning architecture.

Danes are very proud people in a low-key way and seem to all portray their concept of "Hygge", which loosely translates to 'cozy'. This concept is unique to the Danish language so explaining the true meaning to an English-speaker can be troublesome. Another key ingredient to Danish culture is modesty; this trait can be seen in regard to behavior as well as in the Danes famous minimalistic design.

The five main regions of Denmark are Jutland, which is the European mainland, Funen and smaller surrounding islands, Zealand, Lolland-Falster, and Bornholm. About 40% of the countries population resides on the island of Zealand. In the Jutland region, you can find historical towns as well as the birthplace of the popular children's toy, Lego's. In the region of Funen and its surrounding islands, you can visit the home of world-renowned author, H. C. Andersen. Zealand is home to the country's capital, Copenhagen, as well as the Vikings' Roskilde. Who doesn't want to see some Viking memorabilia while traveling in Denmark? For the traveler looking to get into nature and explore the great outdoors of Denmark, you will want to visit the Lolland-Falster region. Bornholm is much more east compared to the other regions and known as the vacation island.
