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 economy and one of the most egalitarian societies in the world.

Culture and lifestyle

Denmark is world-known for its focus on sustainability, new Nordic food, bikes, classic furniture design and for being one of the happiest country in the world.

In Denmark people strive to create a better environment for all by developing new and greener ways of living, greener transportation, town planning, industry and more. Along with the sustainable agenda, Denmark is a country with great cultural surplus, because of its wealth and prosperity. Art is often supported by the government and this gives abundant opportunities for artists to develop and express their creativity. But Denmark is also a place where young and untamed culture blossoms in the underground. You find unfinanced graffiti, and street art and cultural festivals based primarily on voluntary work.
