Greece and Turkey - June 30th, 2010

Thousands of islands belonging to Greece (left) and Turkey (right) dot the waters of the Aegean Sea. These are the Aegean Islands, a group of islands in the Aegean Sea, with mainland Greece to the west and north and Turkey to the east; the island of Crete delimits the sea to the south.

Crete, easily discernible towards the bottom of the image due to its large size, is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea at 8,336 km2 (3,219 sq mi).
