Living in Denmark

Denmark is a small country that regularly features high in quality of life surveys. Because of governmental measures to ensure equality amongst its citizens, it has relatively little disparity between rich and poor. Saying that, however, the cost of living is rather high, although you can expect a decent salary to compensate for this. English is widely spoken in Denmark, so it's quite easy for English speakers to settle in and communicate with locals. Denmark has mild winters and cool summers; average summer temperatures are somewhat cooler than the UK but winter temperatures don't plunge anywhere near the extremes of central Europe.
