Greenland is an island which is an internally self-governing part of Denmark, situated between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. Greenland lies mostly north of the Arctic Circle and is separated from the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, on the west, primarily by Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, and from Iceland, on the east, by the Denmark Strait. The largest island in the world, Greenland has a maximum extent, from its northernmost point on Cape Morris Jesup to Cape Farewell in the extreme south, of about 2655 km (about 1650 mi). The maximum distance from east to west is about 1290 km (about 800 mi). The entire coast, which is deeply indented with fjords, is roughly estimated at 5800 km (3600 mi). The total area of Greenland is approximately 2,175,600 sq km (approximately 840,004 sq mi), of which some 1,834,000 sq km (about 708,110 sq mi) is ice cap. The capital and largest city is Nuuk.
