Scandinavian peninsula from space.

The Scandinavian Peninsula is the largest of the well-known peninsulas of Europe, with a greater area than the Balkan, Iberian and Italian peninsulas. During the Ice Ages, the sea level of the Atlantic Ocean dropped so much that the Baltic Sea, the Gulf of Bothnia and the Gulf of Finland disappeared, and the countries now surrounding them, including Germany, Poland, the other Baltic countries and Scandinavia, were directly joined by land.

The name of the peninsula is derived from the term Scandinavia, the cultural region of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, or to the broader region including Finland and Iceland, which is always known locally as the Nordic countries.
