The Danes are a pretty sophisticated bunch, and responsible for far more that we consider stylish than any population of just 5.5 million people has any right to be. Copenhagen is the natural choice of destination to best appreciate this characteristic cool and confidence, and few capitals so well sum up their nation as this compact city on the sea.
Why we think you’ll love it
