One of the most beautiful countries in the world, Denmark is a small, compact, and a very convenient country to visit. This amazing Nordic country is known for its sturdy engineering, architecture, food, fashion, art galleries & museums, castles & palaces, and truly world class cities. However, Denmark’s greatest charm is its unique concept of ‘Hygge’ (pronounced as hoo-guh), which means to look out for a comfortable, cosy moment to cherish in your daily routine. There are several reasons to visit this beautiful country, be it to experience the Danish warmth of ‘Hygge,’ or to bask in its soft, sunny glow while cycling in the countryside, or to laze around on the windswept beaches of North Atlantic Sea. Take your pick!
