10 + Surprising Facts About Denmark

The world is huge and it has many different cultures and people within it and we hear on a few facts Have had the pleasure to talk about and learn about so many countries from India to Canada to Sweden and within learning about those places we found so many great stories and Accomplishments for those nations and its people but today on FTD facts we are jumping a little bit further into the world and talking about a Fascinating country a country that may not be big in size But its heart is easily measurable to the rest of the world and that is the country of Denmark Yo guys what’s going on Dave Walter here and welcome to FTD facts the channel where we? When we talk about different cultures and people from all around the world and today? We are looking at the great country known as Denmark. Which is a nordic country now before I get in this video guys I’ll let you guys know about grammar Lucam They’re one of our sponsors if you guys aren’t good at English and grammar Just like myself feel free to check that out at the end of this video because you got to learn about Denmark right now So let’s get into talking about Denmark guys because it’s a really cool Fascinating country one that I’ve been wanting to talk about for a while as a matter of fact when I was a kid I used To always think that Denmark was like a restaurant, but then I found out it was a country and I was like oh, God maybe I should never tell two danish that so the first thing we got to start talking about is its Population and it’s a pretty big country for its size being home to approximately Five million seven hundred and Forty-eight thousand seven hundred and sixty nine people at least that’s estimated for 2017 – this estimate it is listed as the one hundredth and twelfth largest country due to Population and all these people are spread across a unique landscape that is approximately forty 2931 Square kilometres which means for every square kilometre you go you’ll see approximately 133 point four people I really hope you don’t see point four people because that would just be disgusting They’d be cut into like almost half now keep in mind a good portion of Denmark’s size of land can’t be accurately Calculated and this is due to the fact that because it’s in an archipelago There’s so many times that tides come in and wash away islands And this is because although it is a beautiful place it is quite flat it has an average elevation of 34 meters Above Sea level which sets denmark at fourth when it comes to countries with the lowest average elevation Other countries like Maldives tarr the Netherlands are ahead of it So you might be wondering are there a lot of mountains in Denmark well? Unfortunately not the highest point is maho a sitting at a hundred and seventy point eight five meters now its height was Disputed for quite a long time until they set the record straight in 2005 and the area itself is marked the Millstone Which is the remains of an old mill that used to once sit there until about? 1917 and although Denmark is a really cool and interesting country What is unique about it besides the fact that it’s flat and it’s got really cool culture well let’s talk about its economy because currently it sits at the 37th largest export economy in the entire world they export a total of eighty five point eight billion dollars a year now when it comes to imports it ranks at 34th having a pretty balanced import export ratio and its imports equal eighty five point two billion dollars Which is just shy its exports and out of all these exports ten percent are packaged medicaments which 28% of those medicaments go to the United States they also export these to germany and sweden and some of the Imports at four point six percent are cars and three point five being refined petroleum However if we’re going to talk about Denmark and its import exports one that we should mention is pigs they had a lot of them as a matter of fact pygmy equals three percent with also human an animal blood coming in at 2.8 percent I never knew that Country’s really Exported blood that’s kind of a new thing for me and the reason this is mentioned is because in Denmark There are more pigs than there are people as a matter of fact they have an estimated 24 to 28 million pigs Which is much more than their like 5 million people the reason for all these pigs is because Denmark is the leading Exporter of pork in the entire world and the country is home to about 5,000 pig farms which may be in the United states. There’s more but as for exporting They are the ones that actually are the highest and as for the manure produced from these pigs They say they could fill up to 90,000 swimming pools of it each year I don’t know if that’s olympic sized swimming pools But either way that’s something that I just wouldn’t want to go swimming in now one thing. That’s most important about Denmark Is its monarchy it is considered the oldest continuous monarchy in Europe it began in 935 with Gormley Old being considered the real first king of Denmark however some historians are like. No, that’s not actually true It’s probably actually his son Who’s named Son Harvard? Bluetooth who pretty much won all of Denmark bringing them all together and although there are many different family names that have changed throughout history Within the Royal monarchy we should probably mention Margaret the first or as the danish pronounce it margaret the first who was the first female monarch for the country now She was the founder of the Kalmar union and her reign was from 1387 to 1412 now one thing That was really interesting about her is she had a really interesting policy within the government And that was that the government would give 500 marks to any woman that was Violated or abused during the wars with Denmark and sweden and let’s not confuse her with Margaret II who is you know part of the monarchy now earlier when I talked about it being? Archipelago Denmark is a country that is not only on a peninsula called Cutland, but it’s also a land that is home to 433 named Islands and one thing that I found interesting out of these 433 Islands about 70 of them are uninhabited I didn’t think there was a lot of that in Northern Europe and out of all these islands and its peninsula known as ute land they have about 13 heritage sites now eight of them are considered un Sco or unesco Zones and what we should mention is the yelling mounds runic stones? In church this was the first unesco Zone aim Denmark being inscribed in 1994 it is located in a yelling Jael Municipality and although it might seem like they’re just two stones they were erected by grum the old for his wife Sarah and many people think of this site as being the beginning of Denmark as a nation and one thing to add although these rocks are outside currently the unesco officials came in and surveyed the area and Discovered that these rocks were being damaged because of erosion so they’re going to put them in an indoor facility So there you have it guys that is us talking about the great nation of Denmark if you guys know any facts that we missed or read perhaps Maybe got some of these wrong let us know down there in the comments below because we always like to follow up on our videos And we like to do part twos threes fours and fives because you can’t summarize the greatness of a country in just one simple video My name is did well guys and as usual here on FTD facts We want to thank you guys so much for watching if you like this video hit that like button subscribe to the channel and check out our other videos because you’d be surprised about the cool things that other countries have to offer but This is Denmark a country that does have a lot to offer A great nation with amazing history that has been important to the formation of Europe a place where the people in Culture work hard to Be proud of themselves.

  17. Denmark is not a country its merely a group of small number of people (5 million) who are living together for their safety, security and common culture. Pakistan's one big city Karachi have 25 million people; It means in Karachi more people are living than the people living combined in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

  18. Alle danskere skriver bare. "Like hvis du er dansker". OVER 80% AF ALLE I DETTE HER FORKIN KOMMENTARFELT ER DANSKERE. 👌 200%

  19. Sorry mate, all you are doing, is regurgitating wikipedia facts. You are american, a country with merely 200 year history. You haven't got a clue, about Denmark, or the Danish people. We are the original Vikings with thousands years of history.

  20. GO OUT.


  22. Stupid fucking drunken nation! Women born drunk procreating drunk children! Two are working paying tax and three getting drunk doing nothing living with money paid by the two workers. A stupid regime! Scandinavian social democracy ….having the same regime since the end of WW2 makes it a dictatorship even longer north Korea. They love their regime because they are all afflicted by a so called Stockholm's syndrome. Denmark has the highest abuse of anti depressant in the world.

  25. Du ved godt at jelinge rund om jelinge kirken er der nonge hvide Stan der former en kæmbe skib og rund om Jelling er der raster fra en mur.

  26. Angenehmen Tag, möchte an dieser Stelle einmal vorstellig werden, denke, bin bekannt, jedoch nicht meine Gedankenwelt die sich noch extremer in den letzten 5. Jahren verändert hat. Denke, ihr solltet dies nun auch Wissen und lesen dürfen.

    Hier wird eventuell eines Tages mehr dazu stehen. Nach meiner derzeitigen Auffassung sind die Grenzen natürlich zu schließen. Ein Vorwort wird sicherlich noch entstehen, aber zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt bin ich mit anderen Seiten beschäftigt. Diese werde ich hier Aufführen.

    Derzeit muss ich auch Leider Masturbieren und anders wäre schöner, glaub man dran, vielleicht eines Tages? Für ein paar Stunden, bei netten Gesprächen und zu zweit?

    Die frage muss ich Stellen weil ich keine Lust mehr aus das gelabber habe in dieser Stadt. Hatte nie ausländische Freunde aus einem anderen Kulturkreis, sofern diese welche wahren? Wohl eher nicht.

    Diese Seite werde ich in etwa so gestalten wie bei Wattpad, Instagram, damals Facebook. Hier bleiben meine Gedanken meine! Gesichert mit Datum usw. Bin über Wattpad bekannt und werde es wieder so aufbauen, manches, zumal es aus meiner geistigen Federstammt und somit mein geistiges Eigentum ist! Darf es von anderen nicht in der Form verwendet werden, das Lied der Deutschen werde ich ebenfalls in der Art und Weise hier gestalten und wohl mit beginnen. Dies gilt in übrigen für jede meine Blogg-Seite.

    b.) https://danielvonwartenbergdeutschland.blogspot.com/

    c.) https://danielvonwatrenbergeuropa.blogspot.com/

    d.) https://danielvonwartenbergprivat.blogspot.com/

    e.) https://danielvonwartenberggedankenzurwelt.blogspot.com/

    d.) Hier geht es zu meinem YouTube – Kanal

    Sie dürfen davon ausgehen, dass diese Kanäle von mir Stammen und eben kein Tagebuch des Deutschen von mir verfasst wurden ist. Dies sind meine Blogseiten. Wie auch mein YouTube Kanal wo Sie sich Videobeiträge ansehen können, die ich so nach und nach erweitern werde.
    Sofern mein Internet wieder vernünftig läuft, andernfalls werde ich diesen Vertrag wohl nach über Zehn Jahren bei Vodafone-KabelDeutschland kündigen müssen. Sollten sie sich überlegen die Damen und Herren von Vodafone Kabeldeutschland. Denke, einen Zahlungswilligen Kunden zu verlieren ist NIEMALS gut. Schließlich zahle ich für die Internetverbindung. Bin derzeit dennoch am Überlegen diesen Vertrag aus gewissen Gründen zu Kündigen.
    Auf Youtube gibt es weitere Kanäle wo ich etwas eingefügt habe, diese darf man sich ebenfalls ansehen, wie ich diese auch Kommentiert habe und so weiter. Dabei sollte man auch immer auf Datum und Uhrzeit achten.

    Blogseiten werden gegen Abend geschlossen.

    Immer dran denken, dies ist mein geistiges Eigentum also ist da auch ein Copy right drauf.
