Ioannes Paulus II Peninsula

Ioannes Paulus II Peninsula (Bulgarian: Полуостров Йоан Павел II Poluostrov Yoan Pavel II Bulgarian pronunciation: [poluˈɔstrov joˈan ˈpaveɫ fˈtɔri]) is an ice-covered peninsula on the north coast of Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica that is bounded by Hero Bay to the east and Barclay Bay to the west. It extends 13 km in length in north-south direction and is 8 km wide. Its north extremity is formed by the ice-free Cape Shirreff, an area visited by early 19th century sealers. The peninsula's interior is occupied by Oryahovo Heights.

The feature is named after Pope John Paul II (1920–2005) for his contribution to world peace and understanding among people.
