Which country does Greenland belong to?

Greenland is the largest island on the planet, located in the North Atlantic ocean, just 740 kilometers from the North pole.

The huge (2.2 million square km) area of the island is 80% covered with ice. This is the famous Greenland ice sheet, which in places reaches a thickness of three kilometers.

The population of Greenland – just over 57 thousand people, mostly Inuit (Greenlandic Eskimos) – lives in a narrow coastal strip, free of ice.

Greenland as a country has belonged to Denmark since 1653. The symbol of Greenland – a polar bear is depicted on the coat of arms of the Danish kings.

Since 1979, Greenland has been part of this country as an Autonomous state with fairly broad rights. The main language is Greenlandic, although Danish is mandatory in schools.

Tourists traveling to Greenland to see the amazing ice landscapes or unique eskimo mummies in the Museum of the city of Gotthob (the capital of the island), should keep in mind one important circumstance. Although Greenland belongs to Denmark, it is not a member of the European Union. This was decided by the Greenlanders in a referendum in 1985. Accordingly, there are no Schengen visas and there are no euros in circulation. The monetary unit is the Danish Krona.
