    Really? I've seen many tall Danes.

    Danmarks lille befolkning er meget høj. :D

    Denmark has about five millions inhabitants; for that it has a "small population".

    Very similar to the German "Bevölkerung"

    Like my great grandfather Nels Peder Rasmussen

    But the whole Kingdom of Denmark has a lot

    Are you kidding me?! Considering the size of that tiny country it has a huge population

    not THAT small, though - thinking of Iceland, for instance :-)

    Uruguay is a small country that is overshadowed by ita two giant neighbors with big population and territory. Same with Luxemburgo, a small country sorrounded by giants like France, Germany...

    Not true. Try Iceland, Barbados, Belize,Malta, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Mauritius, Luxembourg, Suriname and many more.

    I wonder how listing more countries with small populations keeps Denmark from having one, too. °-°


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kosjef

    Everything is relative, all right. It just does not seem to me at all that countries with +4M citizens have a small befolkning.

    If all you're surrounded by is Germany and Sweden, with a dash of Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Poland, you can develop some issues in that regard. :´)

    (Norway's around there, too, but it actually has fewer inhabitants than Denmark.)

    I'm actually from Estonia, population 1.3M. So, indeed, I have some population issues :D

    You call 5.7M small!? Look at us! Were only 300k!
