Denmark

Denmark pictures. Denmark is the smallest and southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, bordering on Germany in the south. Its geography consists of the mainland (called Jutland) and about 400 small islands, but the faraway Faroe Islands and the even further Greenland (being 50x as big as mainland Denmark) are also parts of the country. Denmark's geography means a close relationship to the sea, with the most important places being atmospheric seaside towns. Contrary to Scandinavia's 'cold' image, Denmark has its fair share of sunshine and pleasant temperatures in the summer, making it an ideal travel destination.
This photo gallery displays pictures of the capital, stunning Copenhagen (having great examples of Scandinavian architecture), and a picturesque town, Helsingor, which lies where the strait between Denmark and Sweden is the narrowest.
