The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, aka the United Kingdom (UK or U.K.) or Britain, is a sovereign country situated off the northwestern coast of the European mainland. The total area of the United Kingdom is 240,000 km^2 (94,000 square miles). The United Kingdom includes the northeastern part of the island of Ireland, the island of Great Britain and several smaller islands. Northern Ireland shares a land border with the Republic of Ireland; otherwise, it is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the English Channel to the south and the Celtic Sea to the southwest, the North Sea to the east, giving it the twelfth longest coastline in the world.
The Brits invented the first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system, back in 1840. The ‘Penny Black’ had a picture of Queen Victoria on it, and as the name suggests, cost one penny. Before that time, it was usually the recipient who paid the postage price, which varied according to how far the letter had traveled. Key facts to remember for our western Europe map quiz.
The UK’s coasts are famous around the world, from stunning winding walks and clifftop landscapes to golden sandy beaches. Indeed, England alone boasts more than 60 beaches with the coveted ‘blue flag’ status. While the weather in the UK isn’t always great, if you do find a sunny day you’ll never be far from a great day out – nowhere in England is more than 75 miles from the sea.
A fun fact about Spain is that although Spanish is the majority language, Spain has 4 co-official languages. They are Catalan, Basque, Galician and Aranese. There is other Romance minority languages, though not official, that have special recognition, such as the Astur-Leonese group (bable) and Aragonese (aragonés) in Aragon. You can think of it as English and French in Canada.
Spain – or the Kingdom of Spain, to give the country it’s official title – is the second-largest country in the European Union after France. It measures up at around 506,000 square kilometers if you include the Canary Islands and the Spanish territories along the North African coastline.
The Spanish national anthem has no words. If you listen to anthems only on the Olympics, this may not sound that bizarre to you, but in reality, most national anthems do have lyrics. In fact, besides “Marcha Real”, only the anthems of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and San Marino have no official lyrics.
