Denmark is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It is one of the most populous and politically central constituents of the countries in Europe, a constitutionally unitary state that includes the autonomous territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Denmark is the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, lying southwest of Sweden, south of Norway, and north of Germany.

Denmark consists of many islands, is small, densely populated, and surrounded by lovely beaches. As mentioned Denmark borders Sweden to the east and Germany to the south. The Oresund Bridge connects Denmark and Sweden from the Danish island, Zealand. Jutland, which is a peninsula, connects Denmark with Germany. The third-largest island in Denmark is Funen, which connects Zealand and Jutland with two bridges, the Great Belt Bridge and the Little Belt Bridge.

Denmark is a constitutional monarchy. Queen Margrethe II has no real political power, and the democratically elected Parliament is the country's highest authority. Denmark is a member of the EU (European Union) but has kept the Danish krone, as its currency, while a lot of the other European countries use Euro as its currency.

Though Denmark is a relatively small country we must remember that Greenland is also a part of the kingdom of Denmark. The giant territory of Greenland belongs to the Danish kingdom. So, in reality, the country’s area is a lot bigger than just 42,931 km2, considering the fact that Greenland’s total area is 2.166.000 km². However, Greenland is an autonomous constituent country.

The smaller island group “the Faroe Islands” is also a part of the kingdom of Denmark.
