In which country is South Korea in?
The Republic of Korea is usually called South Korea for short. While North Korea is located in the north of the Korean Peninsula, the Republic of Korea occupies the southern part. From the northern neighbor, South Korea is separated by a border of 242 kilometers.
Both states were founded in 1948. Previously, the country had been occupied by Japan. As a war loser, Japan had to abandon it after the Second World War. The Allies divided it, and the Korean War from 1950 to 1953 consolidated this division.
The other borders of South Korea are by the sea: to the west is the Yellow Sea, to the south is the East China Sea, and then to the east is the Sea of Japan.
South Korea is quite hilly. About 70 percent of the country is covered with mountains. The largest mountain range, the Taebaek Mountains, runs along the east coast. In the north, it extends further to North Korea.
There are no large lakes in the country, but there are four large rivers. The longest is the Nakdonggang. And the sea surrounds the land. The coastline is a proud 2413 kilometers. Everything that does not border the sea borders North Korea. Around South Korea there are also some islands, the largest is Jejudo.
