TRAVEL GUIDE: DENMARK

Bordering the North and Baltic Seas, the Kingdom of Denmark is one of the smallest countries in Europe and one of the oldest constitutional monarchies in the world. It's made up of the Jutland Peninsula, which shares the country's only land border with Germany, and many small islets and far-flung crown territories that include Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Copenhagen, the country's southernmost city and capital, is a modern Scandinavian metropolis graced with royal castles, parks, modern and ancient architecture, and the harbor where the famed Little Mermaid statue is on display.
