The Early Years

Copenhagen is a fabled city and the pride of the Danish people, a people who feel that they have solved the problems of modern life.

The Geographic Situation of Copenhagen

As shown on the map below, Denmark is one big peninsula, Jutland, and several large islands.

Copenhagen is located on the eastern edge of the large island of Sjælland (Zealand) and the adjacent small island of Amager. Its approximate location is indicated by the red circle.

Although Copenhagen is located on the coast of the Baltic Sea its situation is more like that of a city located on river. Like a river city it has spread over both banks of the channel it is located on.
