Denmark - a country of lakes, islands and small towns and located between the North and Baltic Seas. Most Danish cities were built as a port and used to be a great maritime country. Specially during the viking period. Can you imagine a viking without a ship?
In Denmark, there is one major feature - the difference in language. In one part of the country people speak Danish and another in Danish, but with the local dialect. Two Dane from different cities hardly understand each other. Today, Denmark has more than 100 dialects!
It's amazing how such a small country can be such a different mentality, traditions and dialects. This is due to the fact that west Danmark, called Jylland is a country of farmers and livestock. Naturally, that farmers life is a bit different than urban residents of Copenhagen. In turn, the island of Bornholm is famous with its pigs farms, because the population of people is 40 thousand and population of pigs is 200 thousand. Over time the island Bornholm was under Swedes, Germans, Russian, and then finally became danish. The rich history of the island without doubt, played a role in shaping the consciousness of local residents.
