Short History:

Denmark’s history is a tale of Vikings, monarchies, and modern prosperity. In the Viking Age, Danish seafarers and warriors, such as Canute the Great, ruled the region. Over time, Denmark became a kingdom with its own royalty.

In the 16th century, Denmark and Norway formed a union, but they went their separate ways in 1905. Denmark then became a constitutional monarchy. During World War II, Denmark faced German occupation but resisted and managed to save many Jews.

Post-war, Denmark evolved into a welfare state, prioritizing education, healthcare, and social welfare. The country embraced renewable energy initiatives and gained a reputation for happiness and the concept of “hygge.” Today, Denmark is a modern European nation with a rich cultural heritage.
