I wonder why, I saw that greece scored the lowest. I knew it immediately, while with some others I needed another guess, and germany totally threw me for a loop.

Edit: I looked it up and it is NOT czechia, it IS actually austria. Czechia is 704 km and austria 801km...

Some of us don't know every country's borders. I had trouble with several, but I had enough time left to start guessing and eventually got them all and still had a minute left. Maybe the time is a bit generous but I'm not complaining.

That was a bit surprising. Apparently the border with Panama is curvier and also goes out onto a small peninsula on the Pacific side, so it is longer than it looks.

Jul 4, 2019
the polish border is only 476km. But according to my data (2 sources now, will continue looking if I find something that might match wiith this quiz..) austria is 804km and czechia just 701km.. Btw the dutch border beats the polish one, with 575 km>

Tbh I thought the polish border was more significant aswell. I guess you get that feeling because poland is rather big.

Are you sure about Germany? I was pretty sure our longest border is shared with Austria?

Why? Austria borders the one side of Bavaria, Czechia borders one other long side of Bavaria plus the full length of Saxony.
+1
level 63
Jul 4, 2019
the amount of sides is rather irrelevant... and the region it borders even more so... That is like saying Switzerland only borders Baden-Württemberg but Luxembourg borders (the entire westside of) Rheinland Pfalz AND Saarland. That does not make the border luxembourg has with germany bigger than the border switzerland has, no matter how you make it sound. There is no logic in that.. All the sources I can find show that the austria border is bigger than the czech border. I could only find 1 reference showing the czech border being bigger and that is when I literaly searched for the 815 km mentioned in this quiz. Annddd.... the source it links gives the same number I keep coming across lower than austria.

Besides you make it sound like czechia beats austria by a huge amount, like twice as much. Even if the 815 km is correct (for which I still not have found evidence and the pile of evidence against it just keeps growing bigger.. so higly unlikely, but I havent personally been there with a measuring tape..) The austria border is 804km, so that is a difference of only 11km. And according to one You made it sound it was ridiculous even thínking austria could be larger.

The one source I found that states that czechia-germany is 815 km also states that austria germany is 815km... so something is amiss there..

@quizmaster what source did you use for the germany-czechia border? Because world factbook gives a different number, and most pages ultimately have used them as their source 804 for austria and 701 for czechia)

Wikipedia contradicts itself. If you go to the geography countries you get one number (a: 801 km and c:810km) but if you go to austria-germany and czechia-germany border pages, you get different numbers (a:815/816 (only one that doesnt link to world factbook) and c:815km) All the numbers but one give world factbook as their (dated, 2012) source but world factbook itself say something different..

The geography of germany page DOES actually have the same numbers as worldfactbook. (Austria 804km and Czechia 701 km)

So austria is consistenly shown to be around 810km (801-816) while czechia differes from 701km to 815 km while All of the different pages give worldfactbook as their source where it is shown as 701km)
