How Far Is It From Croata To.....?

I was in the middle of something and had to use Google maps, I had to double check something regarding distances, and just now decided to spur of the moment make a post of some of some related findings, as something to do. (I'm actually watching "Fright Night 2: New Blood" at the same time, probably one of, if not the greatest film from the past 25 years) So anyway, I didn't do every European country, but below is a list of a some countries and their distance from Croatia. For instance, Poland is only a few hours drive away and not that far, (they drive faster on the highways there), however after discovering that the distance from Croatia to Switzerland was shorter than I had previously thought, geographically actually even closer than Poland, I figure I would add a few more countries to make an interesting quick post. Good geography tips if anything.

It's important to know geography sometimes.

Now Europe is, well...Europe. As you know, one doesn't have to travel very far before hitting another country. I didn't do every country either, you can go to the Google map below yourself and figure out the distance if your country isn't in the list. These distances I rounded off to the closest kilometer, and they are in a straight line from their closest points according to the borders. "As the crow flies" like they say up there in Alabama and Arkansas. Some of the distances may surprise you, some may not. Some you may not believe, but you can always double check for yourself on the Google map at the bottom.....
