Denmark

by Monica Puente

Hej og velkommen! Hello and Welcome!

In this flyer, I will introduce Denmark and show you it's ekstraordinære and bedøvelse features!

Geography

Denmark can be easily recognized for its landscape of fjords, beaches, and rolling plains. Denmark's coastline is 7,300 kilometers long, which benefits the idea of harbors, fishing and as well as beaches that are frequently used for tourism. The largest peninsula in the world is the Jutland Peninsula, which is what divides Denmark from Germany with a border of 68 kilometers.


The climate in Denmark is considered temperate, where the summer is generally cool and the winters fairly colder. However, in some parts of the country, there is ample sunshine, which is considered pleasant for people who love to visit beaches!

Tourist Attractions

It's obvious that Denmark has very nice views and such, but did you know that there are some interesting attractions that are favored by tourists and residents?

If you didn't, i'll show you!

1. Tivoli Gardens

The Tivoli Gardens is an amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen, Denmark that is very well known and frequently visited as well!

The park opened on 15 August 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world, after Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg.

With 4.033 million visitors in 2012, Tivoli was named the second most popular seasonal theme park in the world, the most frequently visited theme park in Scandinavia, and the fourth most visited in Europe!

2. (Dyrehavsbakken) Bakken

Dyrehavsbakken or, commonly referred as, Bakken, is located in Klampenborg, Denmark.

Bakken is considered the OLDEST amusement park in the WORLD!


It's history dates back to the discovery of a spring in the year 1583!



The spring's water was quickly regarded to having a great amount of healing powers, attracting people from miles away to drink it. They were soon joined by entertainers, who took advantage of the situation to make money by creating side shows.

From there on, the small spring attraction developed into what it is today - a quaint, low key version of Tivoli, even though it is said that Tivoli itself was based out of Bakken than the latter.

Daily Life

According to Denmark.dk, Denmark's official website, it states that:

"Many non-Danes living in Denmark suggest that the Danes are open and welcoming. Others may call them reserved, especially during the long winter months. For many Danes, the word "hygge" is essential when describing something uniquely Danish. The word is best translated into English as ‘coziness’ or ‘conviviality’ and reflects the sense of community and sense of security which comes about when Danes spend quality time with people they care about."
