Map Northern Europe / ScandinaviaDENMARK

Denmark is on the peninsula of Jutland which extends northward from the centre of continental western Europe, and an archipelago of more than 400 islands to the east of the peninsula. Along with Norway and Sweden, Denmark is a part of the northern European region of Scandinavia. Though small in territory and population, Denmark has played a notable role in European history. In prehistoric times, Danes and other Scandinavians reconfigured European society when the Vikings undertook marauding, trading, and colonizing expeditions. During the Middle Ages, the Danish crown dominated northwestern Europe and in later centuries, shaped by geographic conditions favouring maritime industries, Denmark established trading alliances throughout northern and western Europe and beyond.
