    Ja, weil es sich bei der Krim um eine (Halb-)Insel handelt, nicht (nur) eine Region.
    (Halb-)Inseln: Auf/auf der (auf Sylt, auf Eiderstedt)
    Regionen: In (in Angeln, in Franken)

    Thank you, good catch. (-: I never realized the rule about islands also applied to peninsulas until someone mentioned it in the CC. (It helps if you think of the names in German -- Insel and Halbinsel have a more obvious connection -- but my mental categories were formed by English, so I have to note it as a special preposition rule.)

    I would even support adding this one to the dictionary.
