German Peninsula (Bulgarian : полуостров Герман, translit. Poluostrov German) is the mountainous peninsula projecting from the north end of Fallières Coast in Graham Land, Antarctica 11.4 km in west direction between Bourgeois Fjord to the north and west, and Dogs Leg Fjord to the south. It is extending 15.9 km between Thomson Head to the north and Bottrill Head to the southwest, with its interior occupied by Rudozem Heights.
Bulgarian, is an Indo-European language and a member of the Southern branch of the Slavic language family.
Romanization of Bulgarian is the practice of transliteration of text in Bulgarian from its conventional Cyrillic orthography into the Latin alphabet. Romanization can be used for various purposes, such as rendering of proper names and place names in foreign-language contexts, or for informal writing of Bulgarian in environments where Cyrillic is not easily available. Official use of romanization by Bulgarian authorities is found, for instance, in identity documents and in road signage. Several different standards of transliteration exist, one of which was chosen and made mandatory for common use by the Bulgarian authorities in a law of 2009.
The Fallières Coast is that portion of the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula between the head of Bourgeois Fjord and Cape Jeremy and lies on Marguerite Bay and the Wordie Ice Shelf. On the south it is joined by Rymill Coast, and in the north by Loubet Coast. Fallières Coast was first explored in January 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition under J.B. Charcot, who named it for Armand Fallières, then President of France.
The peninsula is named after the settlement of German in Western Bulgaria, now part of the city of Sofia.
German is a neighborhood in central western Bulgaria, part of the Capital Sofia. It lies at the foot of the Lozen Mountains, at, 639 metres above sea level. As of 2007, it has a population of 2,197 and the mayor is Todor Vukov.
Sofia is the capital and largest city of Bulgaria. The city is at the foot of Vitosha Mountain in the western part of the country. Being in the centre of the Balkan peninsula, it is midway between the Black Sea and the Adriatic Sea, and closest to the Aegean Sea.
German Peninsula is centred at Coordinates: . British mapping in 1978.
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
