Danish Masterpieces

Danish masterpieces

The Kingdom of Denmark (Danish: Kongeriget Danmark) is the smallest and southernmost of the Nordic countries. Located north of its only land neighbor, Germany, southwest of Sweden, and south of Norway, it is located at 56° N 10° E in northern Europe.

From a cultural point of view, Denmark belongs to the family of Scandinavian countries although not located on the Scandinavian Peninsula. The national capital is Copenhagen.

Denmark borders both the Baltic and the North Sea. The country consists of a large peninsula, Jutland, which borders northern Germany, plus a large number of islands, most notably Zealand, Funen, Vendsyssel-Thy, Lolland and Bornholm as well as hundreds of minor islands often referred to as the Danish Archipelago. Denmark has historically controlled the approach to the Baltic Sea, and these waters are also known as the Danish straits.

Denmark became a constitutional monarchy in 1849 after having been an absolutist state since 1660 and has been a parliamentary democracy since 1901.

In addition, Denmark and Japan have both claimed to be the oldest monarchy in the world. Denmark is a part of the European Union.

The Kingdom of Denmark also encompasses two off-shore territories, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, both of which enjoy wide ranging home rule. Denmark is one of the elected members of the UN Security Council and is a leader in the "Scandinavian Model" of public services.
