9 Geography Wales is located on a peninsula in central-west Britain. The entire area of Wales is about 20,779 km2 (8,023 square miles). It is about 274 km (170 miles) north-south and 97 km ( 60 miles) east-west. Wales borders by England to the east and by sea in the other three directions: the Welsh Channel to the south, St George Channel to the west, and the Irish Sea to the north. Together, Wales has over 1,200km (750 miles) of coastline.

10 Sport The most popular sports in Wales are football and Rugby union. Wales, like other constituent nations, enjoys independent representation in major world sporting events such as the FIFA World Cup, Rugby World Cup and in the Commonwealth Games( however as Great Britain in the Olympics). As in New Zealand, Rugby is a core part of the national identity, although football is the preferred sport in North Wales.

11 Sport The Wales national rugby union team takes part in the annual Six Nations Championship, and the Rugby World Cup. Welsh teams also play in the Celtic League (rugby union) alongside teams from Ireland and Scotland, the EDF Energy Cup and the European Heineken Cup. Wales has its open football league since 1992, but for historicial reasons, the 3 major Welsh clubs (Swansea City, Cardiff City and Wrexham A.F.C.) play in the English Football League and another three minor clubs in its feeder leagues.

12 Etymology The English name for Wales orginates from the Germanic word Walha, meaning „stranger” of „foreigner”, probably derived from name Volcae. The term also appears in the „-wall” of „Cornwall”. The Walsh themselves called themselves Cymry, „compatrios”, and named their country Cymru, which is thought to have meant „Land of the Compatriots” in Old Welsh; this has reference to hier awareness that they were the original countrymen of Wales.
