Denmark’s history can be traced back to sometime during the 8th century. In 1397, Denmark was part of the Kalmar Union, until 1523.

Located in Northern Europe, Denmark’s region consists of a peninsula, Jutland, an archipelago of 433 named islands, as well as (Faroe Island and Greenland), two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean.
