About Denmark

July 3, 2018
By: Katrin Uurman

Among the Nordic countries, Denmark is the most southern and also the smallest. The peninsula of Jutland shares its southern border with Germany and is connected to the two major islands of Funen and Zealand by bridges. Formed by the movement and melting of Ice Age glaciers, the 4.3 million hectares landscape is flat and fertile, and more than 60 percent of the land is cultivated. The climate is temperate and fairly distinct in four annual seasons. Denmark has a population of approximately 5.7 million inhabitants.
