Denmark is made up of the peninsula of Jutland (Jylland) and more than 400 islands scattered throughout the North and Baltic seas, most notably Zealand (Sjaelland), Funen (Fyn), Vendsyssel-Thy, Lolland, Falster and Bornholm. This seafaring nation is known for its friendliness, Viking heritage and lovely coastal countryside (nowhere in Denmark is farther than 32 miles from the ocean). The country’s capital, Copenhagen, is arguably the most congenial of the Scandinavian cities.
