Cultural Relations and Greek Community
The Greek Embassy in Copenhagen and the Danish Embassy in Athens work to strengthen cultural exchanges between the two countries via exhibitions, concerts, lectures and other events. The Universities of Copenhagen and Aarhus each have a Classical Studies Chair, while there is also a Modern Greek Studies Chair at the University of Copenhagen.
