Danish Consulate in Christiansted, U.S. Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands, formerly The Danish West Indies, have a rich history and a diversified culture. 

Before the colonial period, the islands were inhabited at different times by the Arawak, Ciboney, and Kalinago peoples. Columbus was given credit for discovering the islands on his second voyage to the New World in 1493.  In the centuries that followed, the islands were ruled by the English, Dutch, French, Spanish, Knights of Malta, and the Danes. From 1754 – 1917 they were known as the Danish West Indies. In 1917 the Islands were sold to the United States and have since been an organized, unincorporated United States territory.

The U.S. Virgin Islands attract many visitors each year and is known for its beautiful white beaches, rich culture, world class diving and charming historical towns.
