The Strange Building - Three Sister

Singapore (i/ˈsɪŋəpɔər/ or /ˈsɪŋɡəpɔər/), officially the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. It lies off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and is 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the equator. Made up of the lozenge-shaped main island (widely known as Singapore Island but also as Pulau Ujong, its native Malay name) and over 60 much smaller islets,[8] it is separated from Peninsular Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north and from Indonesia's Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. The country is highly urbanised, with very little primary rainforest remaining. Its territory has consistently expanded through land reclamation.

Республика Сингапу́р (англ. Republic of Singapore; малайск. Republik Singapura; кит. упр. 新加坡共和国, пиньинь: Xīnjiāpō Gònghéguó; там. சிங்கப்பூர் குடியரசு Ciŋkappūr Kudiyarasu) — город-государство, расположенный на островах в Юго-Восточной Азии, отделённых от южной оконечности Малаккского полуострова узким Джохорским проливом. Граничит с султанатом Джохор, входящим в состав Малайзии и с островами Риау в составе Индонезии.

Название Сингапур произошло от малайского синга (лев), заимствованного от санскритского सिंह siMha (лев), и санскритского पुर pura (город).
