What do we know about Denmark? The question is simple, but, nevertheless, I am sure it will be difficult to many people. We should admit that we know a little.

Denmark is not only the country in which, according to statistics, live the happiest people in the world. Denmark is small cozy towns, colorful houses, luxury castles in paradise parks - a true kingdom from fairy tales. There's no wonder that an eccentric storyteller Hans Christian Andersen was born here.

Before arrival in Denmark we wondered how it happened that most of people in other countries have only heard about two Danish companies (Maersk and Carlsberg), and, nevertheless, the Danish economy is one of the most stable in the world. The answer is simple - people. Denmark is a home to about 6 million people, but they love their country, love good service, and always try to be professionals.

Denmark's capital Copenhagen is a quiet and friendly town where different architectural styles coexist, from classic to high-tech. People sit on the bikes almost from birth. There is a huge amount of bike paths, parks, pedestrian streets and canal waterfronts, where people rest in the evening. 

For a first visit to Denmark, you even do not need a plan. Just come to Copenhagen, spend a couple of days in the city and use the remaining days to visit the nearby attractions on the island of Zealand. Trip to the most of them will take you less than an hour.

So, during your first visit you can see:
