Region Zealand (Danish: Region Sjælland) is the southernmost administrative region of Denmark, established on January 1, 2007 as part of the 2007 Danish Municipal Reform, which replaced the traditional counties ("amter") with five larger regions.
The region is named after the island of Sjælland (Zealand), which it shares with the neighbouring Danish Capital Region. Region Zealand (Region Sjælland) also includes the adjacent islands of Lolland, Falster, and Møn.
