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!
If you didn't, i'll show you!
1. Tivoli Gardens
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
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.
The main export partners that Denmark trades with are Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Norway and the Netherlands.
Their GDP in 2014 was $330.8 Billion (nominal) and $269.9 Billion (PPP).
They trade things like machinery and instruments, meat and meat products, dairy products, fish, pharmaceuticals, fashion apparel, furniture, windmills, Christmas trees, potted plants, mink and fox skin, salt and various specialty niche product.
"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."
Isn't this country just PERFECT?
I know it myself!
Come by and ENJOY the wonders of Denmark!
Farvel og held og lykke!
