Bornholm was one of the three last Danish municipalities (Danish: ) not belonging to a county — the others were Copenhagen and Frederiksberg.
These islands, which do not belong to a municipality or region, are administered by the Danish Ministry of Defence. This makes the dialect difficult to understand for some Danish speakers.
However, Swedish speakers often consider Bornholmian to be easier to understand than standard Danish.
Strategically located in the Baltic Sea, Bornholm has been fought over for centuries.
It has usually been ruled by Denmark, but also by Lübeck and Sweden.
From 1 January 2007 all counties were abolished, and Bornholm became part of Region Hovedstaden whose main responsibility is the health service.
