Lock Map
Name in Danish:Grønland, Danmark
Area:2,166,086 km2
Locality type:Constituent Country


Greenland is since 2009 been divided into 4 municipalities; Kujalleq, Qaasuitsup, Qeqqata, and Sermersooq, beside the large Northeast Greenland National Park.

It was earlier divided into 3 counties: West Greenland (Vestgrønland), East Greenland (Østgrønland), and North Greenland (Nordgrønland): In 1979 these counties were changed to the greenlandish names: Kitaa, Tunu and Avanna, respectively.
