What I most like about Denmark and Copenhagen?

"What I love most about Denmark is that it is a great place for children and families. I feel like kids are very safe and healthy here. I’m very grateful for the generous maternity leave that allowed me to spend quality time with my baby during her first year of life. And Christmas in Denmark is the best!"

What I most like about Denmark and Copenhagen?

"I like Copenhagen because my family is here, and it is easy and pleasant to get around by bike. I like the work/ life balance and that fathers are seriously involved in the care of their children. I cannot imagine a better place to be, especially during spring and summer."
