Moving to Denmark | Basics
In July 2017, I packed my most important and necessary stuff, I said bye to the most important people in my life – and my country – and moved 1500 kilometers away… to Copenhagen!
I first visited this city in May 2015. I was lucky enough to be asked to join a workshop in the headquarters of the company I was doing an internship in, and I obviously said yes! That’s how I fell in love with this capital city and, later on, decided I wanted it to be my home.
Through my job, again, I got the opportunity to move to Denmark and sitting in this exact wooden desk in an apartment in Copenhagen North while writing this article.
If the idea of moving to Denmark has crossed your mind… You’re having a great idea!
This country is best known for being the happiest one in the world. Now, Norway stole this golden medal, but the silver one is just as good.
Here below, to warm up, there are a few information about the destination.

How to know more about Denmark
When I started planning my move, I search online for books about this country, its culture, and its people!
My favorite one is Helen Russell’s A year of living Danishly, for sure, but I also really enjoyed The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking.
