Denmark

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO DENMARK THAN THE CAPITAL

Come to Copenhagen, she said. And you should. But don’t dis the rest of Denmark. This small country has so much more on offer. From darling villages to idyllic landscapes to stunning coastline, this Scandinavian country has so much on offer. Castles and hamlets and Hamlet’s castle. Some of the best art museums and history experiences and culture and food. Learn of royals who still rule and their Viking roots. Soak up the brilliant blue Baltic Sea in a summer house of your own.
