    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

    The full name of the country the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It consists of four parts: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland

    occupies one third of the island of Ireland. It borders on the Irish Republic in the south. The island of Great Britain consists of three main parts: England (the southern and middle

    part of the island), Wales (a mountainous peninsula in the West) and Scotland (the northern part of the island).


    is the largest and the richest country of Great Britain. The capital of England is London but there are other large industrial cities, such as Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester

    and other famous and interesting cities such as York, Chester, Oxford and Cambridge.


    is a country in the north of Great Britain. It is a part of the UK. Scotland is divided into three natural regions: the Southern Uplands, the Central Lowlands and the Highlands

    and islands. The capital of Scotland is Edinburgh, well known for its castle.


    is the country in the west of Great Britain. It is mainly a mountainous land with a chiefly agricultural economy and an industrial and coal-mining area in the south.

    Northern Ireland

    , also known as Ulster, is still a part of the United Kingdom. It is made up of six countries: Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, and Tyrone. One third of the

    population lives in and around the capital, Belfast. . The Irish population is divided into two groups: the Protestants and the Catholics.

    In general the territory of the UK is about 244,000 square kilometers, it takes the 75

    th place among other countries in the world. The population is urban. The capital of the country is London. Now Great Britain is separated from the continent by the English

    Channel, the narrowest part of which is called the Strait of Dover. The British Isles are surrounded by the shallow waters of the Irish Sea and the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea, the

    North Channel and the Atlantic Ocean. The rivers of the region are short and of no great importance as waterways. The longest of them is \"the Father of London\", the Thames, which is a

    little over 200 miles. The surface of GB varies greatly. The northern and western parts of the country are mountainous and are called the Highlands. But there are no high mountains in

    Great Britain. In the north the Cheviots separate England from Scotland, the Pennies stretch down North England along its middle, the Cambrian Mountains occupy the greater part of

    Wales and the Highlands of Scotland

    are the tallest of the British mountains. All the rest (south, east and centre) is a vast plain, which is called the Lowlands.

    The mountains, the Atlantic Ocean and the warm waters of the Gulf Stream influence the climate of GB. So due to the geographic location of Great Britain the type of the climate

    is oceanic. There are no extreme contrasts in temperature in Britain because of the current of warm water flowing from the Gulf of Mexico called the Gulf Stream. Fortunately, as

    Britain does not experience extreme weather conditions, it is never very cold or very hot. The temperature rarely rises above 32C (90°F) in summer, or falls below -10°C (l4°F) in

    winter. The prevailing winds from the ocean to the south-west bring rainfall throughout the year.

    Great Britain

    is a highly developed industrial country. It is known as one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of iron and steel products, machinery and electronics, chemicals and

    textile, aircraft and navigation equipment. One of the chief industries of the country is shipbuilding. 7 per cent of...
