Home to author Hans Christian Anderson, Denmark is one of the Scandinavian countries in Europe and home to many grand buildings like Frederiksborg and Kronborg castles. 

It’s connected to its neighbour Sweden by the famous Øresund Bridge which takes you directly into Malmö.  Its capital city, Copenhagen, is a cool place for solo travellers and a great choice for a city break in general.
