Are the country names the same in all languages? It can be a hard reality to discover, that each mother tongue actually has its own name for country. This is no different for countries and nationalities in Danish as you'll soon discover.

When you visit another country and look at a map, you'll notice that place names have changed. Even cities can have different names than what you'd expect. For example, the capital city of Denmark is Copenhagen to the western world but is København (koh-ben-how) to the Danish.

This article will guide you through each continent, providing a list of country names in Danish.

Note: There are 195 officially recognized countries in the world and we simply couldn't add every single nation. If you'd like to see a country or nationality added to any list below, please add a comment!

Let's go!
