With a rich history dating back thousands of years and riddled with beautiful old buildings, iDanmark (Denmark in Danish) will give you a chance to absorb a history far greater than that here in New Zealand. You won’t feel entirely out of place though as Denmark also has many similarities to New Zealand, including vast coastlines, green farmland and easygoing, friendly people. Denmark is geographically small, but because of its location in the cross roads of Northern and Central Europe it offers an unique cultural experience to its visitors.
