Bornholm is a Danish island that sits far to the east of the Denmark Peninsula, surrounded by the Baltic Sea. In fact, Bornholm is probably mistaken frequently for a territory of Sweden. Unlike the Danish peninsula, which is made up of fairly consistent flatlands, Bornholm Island is a mix of rocky formations and forests. Visits to Bornholm, Denmark, occur mostly during the summer, as the warm months are more enjoyable, especially when traveling over the Baltic Sea. The Island's community depends on the summer tourism and income from Bornholm holiday cottages, as they help boost the local Bornholm economy.
