Who are Denmark's enemies?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Depends on the time period considered.

From the break-up of the Scandinavian Kalmar union in the early 16th century, Denmark's main adversary was Sweden which made Russia the main ally for centuries.

In the 3o year war Denmark was on the protestant side, which would make England and Holland the main allies (supplying the finances for the hired army).

During the survival struggle in the 1660 Holland was an alley without which Denmark probably wouldn't have existed today.

In the Napoleonic wars Denmark was initially allied with various neutral Baltic countries (primarily Russia) trying to avoid having to side with neither France nor Great Britain. Eventually Denmark was forced to side with France.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Potatos, rice, pasta, cow, pig, lamb, chicken, turkey, a variety of fish, cabbage, corn, peas, pepperfruit, beetroot, onion, garlic, rye bread, white bread, local and foreign fruits. I could go on, but I want time to celebrate Christmas a year from now.

Example dishes:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with wilk and sugar on top.

Lunch: A few slices of rye bread with butter and sliced meat or leverpostej (pate of pork liver).

Dinner: Green beans, potatos with brown sauce, and frikadeller (meat balls).

Perhaps a banana or apple in between and chocolate or ice cream in the late evening.

Danish food is often fat and doesn't contain a lot of chilli.

What are the culture traits of Denmark?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Denmark is culturally (as well as in other regards) part of Scandinavia whose culture in terms of religion, traditions etc. was starting to separate out of a bigger Germanic common culture in the 5th century. Since then Scandinavian culture has been distinct by RELATIVELY low level of authority-distance within the social groups. In popular literature this is often exemplified by the viking raids of the 8th to 11th century that allegedly some times could be carried out by almost self-organising groups with the leadership of a lord or king. As part of the Northern European revolt against the Catholic ecclesiastical hierarchy all of Scandinavia became Lutheran protestant. In this religious denomination one does not recognise the religious authority of the Pope, the bishops or the priest - in principle there is nobody between the ordinary human being and God himself. In the 17th and 18th century, travellers have described the peasant populations of both Denmark and Sweden as relatively educated and independent indicating that the lower classes were RELATIVELY less impoverished and subdued than in most European countries. All of this seem to point to an historical root to the egalitarian society that eventually materialised in the Scandinavian welfare states in the mid 20th century (although they were realised by the Social-democratic parties/movements, which were not a Scandinavian invention, but a direct import from Germany).

Among the Scandinavian countries Denmark is usually described as having a more laid-back and informal culture, but the differences within Scandinavia is probably much smaller than between Scandinavia and the rest of the world (not including Holland and the Northern most part of Germany, which have comparable cultures.

When did Denmark takeover the Virgin Islands?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Islands were bought by the US in 1917. They had been a profitable colony until the mid 19th century, but became a liability after the abolition of slavery and changing sailing routes in the region. Denmark was thus eager to sell and during WWI USA finally wanted to buy to eliminate the risk of Germany taken them over and using them as a submarine base. The price was $ 25 million, and the deal had to pass a public vote in Denmark.

It may be interesting to note that even though Denmark was late in freeing the slaves (decided in 1847 to take effect after 12 years, but implemented in 1848 due to a slave rebellion in the West Indies/Virgin Isl.), she was actually the first colonial power to ban the Slave trade. A law was passed in 1792 to have effect in 1802, i.e. before the famous Wilberforce had success with a similar law for the British Empire.

Is Denmark a federation or a unitary system?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, it is not.

- - - - - - -

It depends on how you define Denmark. If you mean Denmark proper (European Denmark bordering Germany) the answer is no, but if you mean the State called The Kingdom of Denmark, then in reality it is a federation, since Greenland and the Faroe Islands constitute two self-governing parts of the state (and Denmark proper the third part). The seats in the Danish Parliament are split in a fixed relation between the three parts of the state: Denmark 175 seats, Greenland 2 and the Faroe Islands 2. [Just to avoid confusion: In spite of the above nobody calls Denmark a Federation]

No, absolutely no problems (= risk factors) one should consider when going to Denmark. You may have heard/read about gang wars during the summer 2009 (turf wars between Hell's Angels and Immigrant gangs), but they have stopped shooting in the streets(!) and it was only in very limited areas anyway. So unles your business is exactly drugs, then there is no reason to worry :-)
