Denmark's numerous enchantments have been increasingly visible to a global audience in recent years. The "European" wing of Scandinavia features gorgeous fairy-tale castles, lush forests, a temperate temperature, friendly population, and an exuberant joie de vivre.
The beautiful parliament buildings at Christiansborg were made a star of the smash TV series Borgen, which created a star of Copenhagen's attractions. Similarly, the Oresund Bridge, a spectacular marvel of engineering that connects the two nations by road and rail, was included in the Danish/Swedish collaboration Bronen (The Bridge). A trip to Odense, the hometown of master storyteller Hans Christian Andersen, is a must for literature fans.
