Copenhagen is the capital and largest city of Denmark .It is situated on the Zealand and Amager Islands and is separated from Malmö, Sweden by the resund.
With the completion of the transnational Oresund Bridge in 2000, Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö are connected by a car/rail link and are in the process of integrating their respective labour markets, resulting in the number of commuters from both sides growing annually.
In 2007, the magazine Monocle listed Copenhagen second in their Top 20 Most Liveable Cities Chart1. In addition, it has also been classified as a GaWC Cultural World City.
The original designation for the city, from which the contemporary Danish name is derived, was bmandehavn, “merchants’ harbor”. The English name for the city is derived from its Low German name, Kopenhagen. The element hafnium is named after the city’s Latin name, Hafnia.
