Denmark geographically occupies the Jylland peninsula and the approximately 500 islands and islets that flank it, the largest of which are Sjælland, where the capital Copenhagen, Fyn or Funen, Lolland is located. Physically belonging to the European continent, the country geographically constitutes the southernmost part of Scandinavia, being separated from Sweden and Norway by only a few branches of the sea (Skagerrak, Kattegat, Øresund). At the Øresund, the Danish and Swedish coasts are less than 10 km apart. This proximity to the Scandinavian peninsula and the opening to the Baltic Sea and the North Sea make Denmark a “Nordic” land, marginal to Central Europe, of which it can be considered a sort of “bridge” to Northern Europe. Geographical continuity with Germany, the border with which it was established in 1920 by assigning Northern Slesvig (Schleswig) and, on the other hand, the historical and cultural belonging to Scandinavia, are at the origin of that particular duplicity of relationships which constitutes the very peculiarity of the country. From an administrative and cultural point of view, Denmark has been unified since the century. X d. C. under the banner of Harald II, king of Viking lineage (and the name of the town means “land of the Dani”, from the name of this Nordic population). Over the centuries, the continuity of the Danish monarchy has greatly contributed to the civil development of the country, which is reputed to be among the most advanced in Europe in terms of social legislation, tolerance, education. From the political point of view, the expansionist will of Denmark has always been directed to the north, concerning the English coasts, Norway, Sweden and the Atlantic lands of Iceland, Greenland), Faroe Islands. The last two still remain under the control of the Danish krone, but have enjoyed extensive autonomy for some time and Faroe Islands began negotiations with the Danish government for independence in 2000. Denmark’s Scandinavian character is revealed in its commercial vocation, economic efficiency and the advancement of civil society. But the country also maintains strong ties with continental Europe, which are concretized on a political and economic level in the entry into the European Union, which took place in 1993, albeit with some exceptions.  According to COUNTRYAAH, Denmark is a nation in Northern Europe, the capital city of which is Copenhagen. The latest population of Denmark is 5,792,213.

CLIMATE
The climate is essentially oceanic, that is, subject to the influences of western air masses of Atlantic origin; these influences, however, alternate with those of the polar continental air masses, coming from the NE, which has significant effects on the variety of climatic conditions from zone to zone. The western section of Jylland, directly hit by the Atlantic winds, is relatively rainy (800 mm per year), while the rest of the country, especially the eastern islands, is characterized by low rainfall, which on average does not exceed 600 mm per year, falling to 450-500 mm on the island of Sjælland. The rains are concentrated mainly in the late summer period, while spring is usually windy and dry. Winter is humid and misty. The temperatures, given the limited mitigating action of the shallow Nordic seas, have significant seasonal variations: in general, they go from 1-2 ºC in January to 13-14 ºC in July, while the country’s annual average is 7 ºC.
