Denmark Country Information
Located on the islands of Zealand (Danish: Sjælland) and Amager in the Danish Straits, Copenhagen (Danish: København) is the capital and largest city of Denmark. Since 1999 (the bridge actually opened to the public in in 2000), Copenhagen has been connected to Malmö, Sweden by the Oresund Bridge (Danish: Øresundsbroen; Swedish Öresundsbron), which is a combined four-lane road and two-track rail bridge.
It is a little hard to pin down the exact population of Copenhagen, because the city limits are not well-defined. However, if you total the population of the 33 municipalities close to, and including, the municipality of Copenhagen, as of 2007, the total was 1,825,814. On the other hand, if one only counts the population for the contiguous built-up area, the population figure only comes out to about 1.1 million.

Weather in Copenhagen
Copenhagen has an oceanic climate. The climate is also influenced by the Gulf Stream, which brings warm water across the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico, causing temperatures to be about 5°C higher than would otherwise be expected for a city at Copenhagen's latitude. Low-pressure systems from the Atlantic do however cause the weather to be unstable throughout the year.
Generally speaking, precipitation is moderate throughout the year, with the heaviest rain occurring between July and September. From December to March, temperatures are usually around freezing point, and there is a chance of snow as well as rain.
