Odense Zoo: A Must-Visit in Denmark

It would be easy to ignore Odenze Zoo when making the itinerary for your visit to Denmark. Being often described as as medium-sized zoo, other zoos may prove more attractive at first glance. However, Odenzo Zoo has many times been called the best zoo in Europe and there is good reason why this is so.


There is one structure that is considered one of the best examples of how old fortresses should be preserved, Kastellet, also known as The Citadel, is not only a star fortress in Denmark but also in the whole of Northern Europe. It was constructed in the form of a pentagram with bastions. Now mainly serving as a public park, this historic site features a number of buildings including a church and a windmill.


The Blue Planet is Denmark's national aquarium located at Kastrup in Copenhagen. It replaced the old aquarium in Charlottenlund when it opened its doors in 2013. This decision came about for the purpose of offering a better facility to disseminate marine information and providing help in science projects. It also seeks to help educational institutions in Denmark teach science to their students.


In the Northern outskirts of Copenhagen lies one of the oldest and largest open air museums in the world - Frilandsmuseet. A museum is considered open-air if its exhibits are found outdoors. Usually, these museums feature buildings and artifacts that are best seen outside as they represent living histories. Landscapes and old structures are recreated, if the original cannot possibly be displayed in the museum.


Denmark has made contributions to all facets of everyday living from food, technology, literature, and many others. What many of us may not realize is that this country is also the acknowledged place of origin of at least three dog breeds - the Broholmer, the Danish Swedish Farmdog, and the Old Danish Pointer. Not many countries can make a similar claim.


People will get to see Denmark in all-together different light - through a game.

So what makes this game so interesting?


There is one specific area in the Tourism industry that is experiencing quite a boom at present in Denmark. This is the Health and Wellness Tourism which is attracting not only foreign visitors but local tourists as well. The surge in growth of this particular tourism industry is said to be a direct result of the increasing trend for self-indulgence. 


Transport System in Denmark

Denmark has one of the most modern and developed transport systems in the world. It covers just about every form of transportation means, ensuring convenient traveling into, within, and out of of the country. It boasts of about 1,111 km of motorway network and about 2,667 km of operational track in its railway system.


Denmark is considered the most climate-friendly country in the world. Be that as it may, it still ranks fourth in the world, meaning that no country is yet worthy to occupy the first three positions. This should give us an idea of how immense the needed effort is to achieve a truly climate-friendly environment.
