Denmark, the home of Vikings and Lego often holds the position as the happiest country in the world to live, with the best work-life balance. This could be due to the gap between the 'haves' and 'have-nots' being very small, which allows the best of the arts, architecture, eating and entertainment to be within easy reach of everyone. It could because of the all inclusive attitude of the Danes towards the very young, old, gay, straight, and whether they travel with kids, pets or bikes in tow. Cities such as Copenhagen are compact, user-friendly, with modern infrastructure. Although maybe the national Danish concept of the "Hygge" - which roughly translates into English as a "get together with friends, usually in candlelight with a glass of red wine to mellow in a cosy and snug atmosphere" is why life in Denmark is so good.
