Dansk Danmark - Kongeriget Danmark

Danmark er et land i det nordlige Europa og indgår sammen med de to selvstyrende områder, øgruppen Færøerne (i Nordatlanten) og øen Grønland (i Nordamerika) i Kongeriget Danmark, som er et konstitutionelt monarki. Danmark består geografisk af halvøen Jylland og 443 navngivne øer og holme, hvoraf de 76 er beboede. Landet er placeret i Skandinavien med havet som nabo, Østersøen, Kattegat og Nordsøen, samt Tyskland som Jylland grænser ned til mod syd. De tre største øer er Sjælland, Den Nørrejyske Ø (Vendsyssel-Thy) (siden 1825, nuværende åbning siden 1862) og Fyn. Hovedstaden København er placeret på Sjælland og er forbundet til Sverige med Øresundsforbindelsen, (der går via Amager).

General remarks:

  • The WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Atlas of the World is an organized and commented collection of geographical, political and historical maps available at Wikimedia Commons. The main page is therefore the portal to maps and cartography on Wikimedia. That page contains links to entries by country, continent and by topic as well as general notes and references.
  • Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections. The text of the introduction(s) is based on the content of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. For sources of the introduction see therefore the Wikipedia entries linked to. The same goes for the texts in the history sections.
  • Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
  • The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
  • The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
