Denmark is situated in Northern Europe between the North Sea and the Baltic, and is the only Scandinavian country connected to the European mainland. All in all, Denmark consists of 406 islands, yet only about 80 of these are inhabited.
The most densely populated part of Denmark is the main island, Zealand. The capital, Copenhagen, is situated at the far east of Zealand and the city itself counts about half a million inhabitants, while if including the suburbs the number reaches one million.
Having a well-developed welfare and health care system, the Danes tend to live longer than they did just decades ago. The average age is now just around 75 years for men and 79 years for women. Most people work until they are well into their sixties and Denmark is characterised by having a very little gap between those who are rich and those who are poor, placing most Danes in a large and thriving middle and upper-middle class.
Copenhagen’s restaurants have more Michelin stars than any other Scandinavian city, and Denmark as a whole would doubtless have more still if the inspectors from Michelin ever troubled themselves to leave the capital and head for Aalborg or Århus & around. Even standards in a workaday Danish café are generally very high.
