1000 years ago Scandinavia was united, at least thinking at the language. The proofs for that are the runic stones founded all over Scandinavia.

Nowadays there are a few differences between Denmark and the other scandinavian countries(Sweden, Norway and Finland). First, the language is different and is very difficult for a danish to understand a swedish. Second, Denmark is very spectacular, but not very big (90 000 sqkm) and has practically no mountains. I never heard about a danish champion in winter sports( did you? Tell me please!). Nevertheless, the danish are very health and sporty, and the young girls are gorgeous.
