Wales is one of the four constituent nations of the United Kingdom, located in the south-west of Great Britain. Wales is bordered by England to the east and by sea in the other three directions: the Bristol Channel to the south, St George's Channel to the west, and the Irish Sea to the north. There are several islands off the Welsh mainland, the largest being Anglesey (Ynys Mon) in the north west.
Much of Wales' landscape is mountainous, especially in the north and central regions.
The Brecon Beacons are in the south and are joined by the Cambrian Mountains in mid-Wales.
Snowdon at 1085 m is the highest elevation in Wales.
Cardiff, on the Bristol Channel, is the capital of Wales. Other important cities in Wales are Swansea, Cardigan, Welshpool, Barmouth, Newport, Bangor, Flint and Wrexham.
