In a little Denmark a lot of things

This little country looks like an illustration of the fairy tales of your sad fairy tale of Andersen – a gingerbread houses, smiling prechaits, many mills and a lot more.

Another 100,000 years ago, people lived on this earth. But in the era of the last glacial period, life here practically stopped. In 8 millennia BC. NS. The ice began to slowly melted, the first scarce vegetation appeared, which attracted the herd of the northern deer in these places. Following animals, nomadic tribes of hunters rushed. Around the XI century n. NS. Danish and other Scandinavian Vikings began to make raids on the coast of Europe. In 1016, Vikings captured England, and then expanded the boundaries of their possessions, conquer Germany. In 1397, Denmark was united with their neighbors, Norway and Sweden, but during the following centuries, wars were walking between three Scandinavian countries, and Denmark lost most of their territories. The modern borders were determined in 1920.

In a quiet, cozy and calm "swamp", Coem and is the entire Scandinavian community, the descendants of the famous Danish Vikings are no longer a reason to threaten to any horned helmets and swords, and they themselves have long understood this and changed their obsolete attributes to more modern – on personal computers and other fruits of achievements of modern civilization. It cannot be said that the Danes themselves did not contribute to any lepta to the arrangement of our world, on the contrary, they came up with such a wonderful thing as Lego, gave the world a number of wonderful football players, and the famous Danish cookies in cute round tin boxes are known to the world.

Copenhagen and Nekopengagesen

Denmark’s population – about 5 million. human. In the capital, Copenhagen (including suburbs) 2.7 million people live. This is a toy pocket town. The atmosphere of the city is pleasant in all respects, and all these Ienseians, Hansen and Larsna are incredibly polite. The cobblestone paved all the squares and pedestrian scenic streets of Copenhagen, asphalt is used only for car trails.

Danes are very proud of King Christian IV. "Christian IV built something, Christian IV built!" In the thoroughness he will not refuse. With a multi-storey tower, very similar to a chess feature "rook", You can look at the whole city, and in clear weather to see the shore of Sweden. In fact, Copenhagen is a stunningly beautiful city. Minimum urban buildings made of concrete, glass and metal, maximum brick and tiles. Solid medieval, crazy architecture (in fact, almost all – 18-19th centuries).

Northeast of the city center is the AMALIENBORG Palace, the Residence of the Danish Royal Family. Palace built from 1749 to 1760. If you go even further north, then you can find yourself in the area of ​​the Citadel, the military fortress built in the 17th century. Citadel to this day is the property of the Danish army. In the harbor for the citadel, you will see the famous bronze statue of the Mermaid, which has become a symbol of the city. Thanks to its location, Copenhagen has always been one of the main seaports of Northern Europe. And now, maritime trade is one of the main branches of urban economy, but other industries received strong development. As a result, the capital of Denmark turned into a major industrial city. Shipbuilding, Mechanical Engineering, Food Industry and Brewing – That’s just a little of what they are doing in the city. Brewing plants Karlsberg and Tibourg are most famous in the city. It is famous for the city and its porcelain of the Danish Royal Factory and the Bing Fairy Plant Roddal.

Copenhagen University leads its history since 1479, and the Royal Library is the most old in Scandinavia, it was founded in 1673. The meeting includes two and a half million volumes. Danish Royal Academy of Sciences established in 1742. There are many museums and art galleries in the city, of which the National Museum, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts and others enjoy the greatest fame. The city has three symphony orchestra, ballet troupe and many theatrical troupes.

It is strange that in this small country-old woman attractions are not only vintage, but also advanced. For example, the longest in Europe bridge, which connects Copenhagen and Jutland (Denmark – all in the islands). Or the highest pipe for the coal heat power plant (after all the higher the pipe, the more it is environmentally friend).

That naile this high-tech shall. The main thing is to get into the most toy city in the world – the city of Riby. This is the oldest city of Denmark, he is 1300 years old. There still lives the family of storks, which nests on the spice of one of the pretty buildings of Riby (this is the only city where conditions are suitable for these capricious and vulnerable birds). The inhabitants of the ribbie are very worried about the family and were shocked when last year the head of the family flew from Africa without a foot – only the calm situation of the city helped him survive.

The historic center of Riby is miniature one-story houses, comfortable to each other. Tourists are good – but the residents are not always. They are forbidden to redo anything! Some were not listened and began to disassemble the wall, and stumbled upon the plumbing pipe of the past centuries. Now live with a pipe in the middle of the room – but rarity.

At noon, the whole city instead of a volley gun listens to a song that clocks in the town hall – . So residents give tribute to the founder of the city – Queen Dagmar, who died here. And do not forget to bow by passing by one toy house, his former owner – the inventor of malt ever lived there.

But do not think that everything is so simple in Denmark – one Kirkegor is worth it, or Andersen. Apparently when they lived, everything was not so good. Parliament (), for example, nationwide efforts founded only one and a half years ago (in 1849). Probably, now the masses are better, the most famous figures of the Danish mass culture are currently ionizing over Pops Aqua. In short, the conclusion is obvious: it is worth come to Denmark. This is a coheree Europeanness in the presence of the identity of this country. Just lovely.

What is in Denmark

Bicycles. All on bicycles! Regardless of gender and age. In Copenhagen bicycles as much as machines, and maybe more. Roads in all cities are divided into automotive and cycling stripes, in some places additional traffic lights specifically for bicycles. In the amount of bicycles on the feet of the population with Denius, it can compete except for Holland.

Museums. It is difficult to imagine that the museum may be so interesting. Danish Hall, Egyptian, Ancient Greek, South American. The strongest impressions: ancient burial found in Denmark (skeletons in wooden decks), and South American guinea pigs (judging by the exposure, faithful satellites of indigenous inhabitants Peru). Danish schoolchildren rumped in a museum, like caustic, jump from the stairs, refine the ancient Danish weapons lying on the floor.

Parliament. In the Danish Parliament hang cartures on politicians and tours for ordinary citizens. Simple citizens may even attend a parliament meeting if it is interesting to them. At the meeting sometimes a dozen people are not going to.

Christiania. Christians – Copenhagen District, in which Danish laws do not work. Drugs there you can buy without problems.

Skage. This is the northernmost point of Denmark. There are two seas there, there is a huge sky and a strong wind. To tell it is impossible. You can only see.

Jungle. In the city of Randers, a real jungle was built with tropical butterflies, snakes, crocodiles, bats, turtles, wizards. Even there is a honey bear – redhead, fluffy, with big round eyes and a long tail, which he clings for branches. Loves medical.

Sharks and skates. In the city of Greno Full Shark. They swim in a huge pool. You can climb into the tunnel, walking along the bottom of the pool, and see how a healthy shark sails over your head. But better all sorts of sharks, octopuses and muren small skates. They can be stroked, scratch them noses. Skates float on the surface of water and begin to spin and wave "Wings". If you lower the hand into the water, the slots swim and substitute that one side, then the other to be stroked.

Kitchen. It seems that the main dish of Danish cuisine is beer, a lot of beer. There it is served to the table, like lemonade since noon. And the Danes are terribly smoking a lot, which does not fit with their ecological paranoia – the ashtrays are sometimes worn even to the desks, and students smoke right at lectures.

Actually, Danish cuisine is simple and angry: many vegetables (hat – cauliflower), a lot of fish and a lot of meat. It is light enough and low-fat, but it is not slammed by all sorts of sauces.

Legolale. Not far from the second largest city of Denmark Orhuca there is a whole country of technical fantasies, which is called Legalland. It is all done from the details of the designer and you can go through the little Copenhagen with the Royal Palace and Guardsmen who are waiting for the change of Karaul. Nearby is sitting a great storyteller Hans Christian Andersen, also from the designer, and his duck from the designer flies above his head. Near the Legoleline Copenhagen, the invented Legolefine Indian country with caves, the monsters and modern attractions spread out. In Bright Toy Legolate, everything is done with incredible thoroughness and love, and therefore this country will delight children and adults. Legolence is open to visitors from the beginning of April to the end of September.

Elsinor. In forty kilometers from the capital, on the shore there is a castle Elsinor, where the life of Prince Hamlet was held. The castle is handsome heavy in impregnable Romance beauty and is open to visit. The day the castle is visited by tourists, and at night, as in the time of Gamlet, ghosts come to life here.

Language barrier is almost no. English know almost all Danes.

Danes are high, good by itself and blonde. They call themselves given, in English – Danes. They fully consider themselves the descendants of the Vikings and love their parliament. They know where their taxes go, and chop prefers salmon. Two thirds of the Danes have at least one squash, mainly in the Celtic-Scandinavian style.

Unlike the average sensing, the average Dane (especially young) Parliament does not like. She loves to dance, loves vodka with juice, as well as representatives of the opposite sex from exotic countries. Young Dane has always sunk, as if he had just returned from these most countries, it has a tattoo and punctured tongue.

Danish cat (like the famous Danish dog) is huge and lazy. On the color, he looks like hedgehog and does not like panibrates towards himself. He is sitting under the sofa, sometimes, however, taken with a purely dog ​​care. Surrounding guest shoes.

As for dogs, the economical Danes consider their content too expensive. Therefore, dogs are rare.

In a little Denmark a lot of things

Danes love vodka. True, special love – in diluting one to five. Take this product by itself they categorically refuse. For the sensing use of vodka in pure form – Dangerous exotic.

Danish beggar walks in gloves without fingers, and with it there is always a dog (as well as two, three, and more). In the hands of the Danish beggar mug. Surrounded by dogs, he stands with a mug somewhere near the Central Station and calmly talks to his friends. (also beggars with dogs). By how the mug is replenished, the Danish beggar does not follow, it’s not interesting for him. It seems that he just went out to be survived. Probably so it is.

In Denmark, no matter how police. They, of course, are, but it is difficult to see them. If not to commit a crime yourself. Danish policeman almost always in civilian clothes. He does not want to annoy the gloomy form. Danish policeman invisible, but, nevertheless, always present on night discos, other gold places under the guise of an ordinary visitor.

Dane – Dobryaki. Once they were very aggressive Vikings, and their possessions extended to the floor of Europe. But from the 50s.G. of our century, thanks to painstaking work in the name of the well-being society, these five million (this is the population of Denmark) clearly became softer. They gently belong to their Queen Margaret and her Taksa Baltasar, and also for a long time forgave Prince Yohan to marry on a charming resident of Hong Kong Nekorolev blood.

Danes Real paranoids in the field of ecology. Many families have homemade presses for utilization of various types of waste.

And even Denmark is the most advanced way in the way produces energy – wind. Typically Danish landscape – Burenks on the background of wind turbines, which produce up to 40% of Danish energy. Nuclear power plants are not at all. In all this – the future of this small country: when all countries reach the same environmental consciousness, Danish know-how and brains will oh, as in price.

Still the Danes have to be law-abiding and pay a huge amount of taxes. Therefore, there is neither scary rich, neither scary poor – the state supports the latter, for which it takes money from the first.

Since good and good things should be a lot, the overwhelming majority of the Danes – fat men. At the same time, they are fun to tear over their belly, which they have really appetizing, especially in girls: Danes look like scandinavian goddess – high, in the body, with a big smile.

And despite all of the above and on a reverent attitude to traditions, Danes – ahead of Europe throughout the number of high technologies per capita per capita.

The history of Denmark has not one wave of emigration. Starting from the Middle Ages, the Dutch, Germans, Swedes, Roma, French, Gugugenotes, and the Swedes, Roma, French, and the Jews who fled from Russian pogroms and later the victims of the Hungarian events of 1956 were found here. It’s seriously, however, the foreigners were talking about when it was all overwhelmed into Europe to import cheap labor from Turkey, Pakistan and North Africa. Then, in the sixties, the idea approved almost all Danish politicians. They decided only in the 73rd, breaking the border and was late responding to jokes in the spirit of Armenian radio: "What will happen if you lose the atomic bomb on Ankara?". Answer: "There will be nothing. All Turks are already in Copenhagen. ".

As a result of the first wave in the country there were up to 10 thousand Muslim families. The second significant flow of immigrants here was already in the eighties – in connection with the events in the Middle East, refugees from Lebanon, Iran, Iraq and people without citizenship were joined in the country – Palestinians. Then the disaster broke out in Somalia. Then Yugoslavia. And each time it turned out that shelter in the country whose flag was decorated with a Christian symbol, most often found carriers of other culture – Islam.

By and large, confessional affiliation "New Danes" – how diplomatic designated immigrants – would not cause anxiety. If it were not for one important circumstance. It turned out that "practicing", how it means it here, Muslim – this is not a Swede, not Pole and not even a Hugenot. Inconsisions to assimilation emigrants did not show down the slightest. Even extinguishing the number of hours of the language and having a specialty, the teams left in the country remained a group highly separately from the course of their surrounding life. From a household point of view, emigrants felt quite happy in their eastern stuffed things. And claims to them – in any case, to those who worked, – the society could not be any, because taxes in the Danish treasury did regularly.

The hosts were confused. For Scandinavians integration meant the firmware and active contact. Europeans prefer to family uzam public relations. Muslims above all put family and sharia. Common language is impossible to find.

Discussions about Muslims in Danish society are infinite. They say it seems to be about the problem, but everyone knows that it is about Muslims. The Minister of the Interior somehow could not stand and publicly asked a rhetorical question: . Yes, because they want to integrate, but Muslims – no.

Now Denmark has 7 percent of foreigners in the population: over the past thirty years, their number has increased seventure, and Islam became the second most important religion in Lutheran Society. And this is just the beginning. Statistics assume that by 2020, the number of foreigners in Denmark will double: 14 percent, or every sixth. Someone should work in this rapidly aging country?
