​Bornholm, but why?

Anzhelika is from Ukraine: “ I came to Denmark – Ålborg 5 years ago, but prefer living in a smaller society, where there is trust between people and neighbors who help each other.  Bornholm is a small island, people here are friendly and helpful and we have a great life in the middle of beautiful nature” 

Reká is from Hungary and came to Bornholm 2 years ago: “ My husband is from Iceland and has relatives here on the island. The first time I was here, I fell in love with the nature and the people and I love my life here. 


We bought a house in Rønne, close to the beach, I love the beach, to swim and walk with the wind in my hair. I have many friends here, a nice job and enjoy learning Danish and the Danish traditions – eg. The Christmas tradition dancing around the Christmas tree.”
