Long walks on the beach, castles from the Renaissance era, bike rides across the hillside; in a nutshell, Denmark has old-fashioned charm with new modern designs and social developments. The design philosophy used can be seen everywhere from fashion to food, to furniture and art. Although Denmark doesn’t possess the natural grandeur many of the neighboring countries have, it does possess simplistic but breathtaking landscapes.
With the natural and laidback vibe resonating in Denmark, it’s no surprise the country is near the top in just about every global survey focusing on the quality of life. The country lives based on egalitarianism. (In other words, each person is considered equal. The cities are viewed as something that belongs to the people.) The majority of the population lives very respectable; however, unlike other countries the rich and the poor are very few and far between. Due to the spirit of living an egalitarian lifestyle, art, architecture, culinary options, and entertainment are all easily accessible to everyone. Everyone is welcome.
Hygge and Happiness
Hygge (pronounced hYOOguh) is something locals strive for. It is a warm environment and the ability to enjoy all the good things in your life with the people you care about. Candlelight can be considered hygge, as can friends and family. Due to this outlook and approach on life, the country tends to be viewed with a fairy tale-like perception.
