Denmark (Danish: Danmark, pronounced [ˈdanmɑɡ̊] ( listen)) is a country located in Scandinavia of Northern Europe.[1] It is the southernmost of the Nordic countries. The mainland is bordered to the south by Germany; Denmark is southwest of Sweden and south of Norway. Denmark borders both the Baltic and the North Sea. The country consists of a large peninsula, Jutland (Jylland) and many islands, most notably Zealand (Sjælland), Funen (Fyn), Lolland, Falster and Bornholm as well as hundreds of minor islands often referred to as the Danish Archipelago. Denmark has long controlled the approach to the Baltic Sea (in a concept known as dominium maris baltici), and these waters are also known as the Danish straits.

The countries of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands constitute the Kingdom of Denmark, a sovereign state.
