Visa, Travel and Tourist Information
Denmark is based in Northern Europe and is the smallest of the Scandinavian countries. The Kingdom of Denmark also has 2 autonomous provinces – the Faroe Islands and Greenland. The latter is over 500 times larger than Denmark but has 100 times less people. Denmark is well known for its strong welfare state, mixed market capitalist economy and has one of the most egalitarian societies in the world. Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark with over 1.1 million inhabitants and is one of Europe's oldest and most wonderful capitals.
Copenhagen is the premier capital of Northern Europe, and is Scandinavia's most fantastic city and the centre of the most dynamic region in Europe, the Øresund Region. The city is one of Europe's oldest capitals with a royal touch - the monarchy in Denmark is the oldest in the world. Originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the beginning of the 15th century. During the 17th century, under the reign of Christian IV, it became a significant regional centre. Since the completion of the transnational Øresund Bridge, Copenhagen has become increasingly integrated with the Swedish city of Malmö, growing into a combined metropolitan area. We wish you welcome and hope you will enjoy your stay in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen is a central location in Europe and has an efficient infrastructure, which makes it easy to arrive by train, bus, ferry, cruise ship or flight.
