Denmark at Glance

Denmark is a small Scandinavian country (43,098 km2) in northern Europe with a population of 5,585,000 (2012) of which 1.2 million live in Greater Copenhagen, the capital. Denmark has been a kingdom since approx. 900 AD and has since 1849 been a constitutional monarchy. The Kingdom of Denmark also comprises the Faroe Islands and Greenland; nations that today enjoy extensive home rule and have their own parliaments, culture and language. The official language in Denmark is Danish but English is widely spoken.

The word ‘Denmark’ dates back to the Viking age and is carved on the famous Jelling Stone from around 900 AD. Today though Denmark is very different from its historical past. Between the 13th and 17th centuries, Denmark was a superpower whose influence was as powerful as that of the largest European countries. Today, the current size and influence of Denmark is the result of 400 years of forced relinquishments of land, surrenders and lost battles. For a small country though, Denmark still punches above its weight in many different areas including design, architecture, farming, green technology and pharmaceuticals.
