About Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands consists of six major islands and over 900 smaller islands in Oceania lying to the east of Papua New Guinea and northwest of Vanuatu and covering a land area of 28,400 square kilometres (11,000 sq mi). The country's capital, Honiara, is located on the island of Guadalcanal.

History

The islands have been inhabited for thousands of years. In 1568, the Spanish navigator Álvaro de Mendaña was the first European to visit them, naming them the Islas Salomón.

In June 1893, Britain declared the southern Solomon Islands a British protectorate. During World War II, the Solomon Islands(1942–1945) saw fierce fighting between the United States and the Empire of Japan.

Self-government was achieved in 1976 and independence was obtained 1978. Today, Solomon Islands is a constitutional monarchy with the Queen of Solomon Islands, currently Queen Elizabeth II, as its head of state.

The Solomon Islands experienced ethnic violence and civil war from 1998-2003 and left many thousands uprooted.
