UK borders 2 countries if you include Gibraltar, which generally these quizzes do

Three because you could also count in Akrotiri & Dhekelia, but let's not do that.

It doesn't matter where Cyprus is; the UK is in Europe which is what matters for the purposes of the quiz. The quiz is about European countries that border one other country, not European countries that border one other European country. Besides, Akrotiri and Dhekelia don't count, as they are overseas territories.

wrong, it does matter, if cyprus is in asia its 2 borders and if its in europe its 1, but its in antarctica so i dont know

Neither Gibraltar nor the Cyprus bases are relevant to the question because neither are in the UK.

Yes actually the UK borders with Spain, Cyprus, Ireland, and a lot more (by sea) like with Argentina

If you include sea borders then I think it would only be Monaco, Vatican and San Marino. (Maybe Ireland as well? Not sure if it gets down to a maritime border with France.)

ireland doesnt have a sea border with france, uk kinda ambushed them so ireland only borders at sea with uk and international becasue uk wants its cod

Or possibly because Ireland isn't at any point nearer to France than the UK is...

I'm not sure if the caveat was there when you commented, but no over-sea territories.

Nit-picky - but you should specify land borders. For example, Denmark and Sweden's waters abut in several places, and even the two mainlands come as close as about 25 miles.

And there's a bridge from one to the other.

Nit-picky more: there's 40 miles between the two mainlands and no bridge - there is, however, a bridge from the Swedish mainland to the Danish island of Zealand, which at the northeastern corner is only 2.5 miles from Sweden

I was under the impression that Monaco borders at least Italy too, clearly I am wrong.

Italy and Monaco are very close, but there is a narrow slice of France in between them.

Level 79
Sep 25, 2019
And yet that narrow slice of France is bigger than the whole of Monaco...

There is eight miles of France in between Monaco and Italy.

Canada and Denmark now share a land border on Hans Island, so this should be changed!
+2
Level 45
Oct 21, 2022
Hans island partly controlled by Greenland, generally considered an overseas department of Denmark and not a constituent part of the country, as per the caveats.
+1
Level 43
Nov 1, 2022
Countries that should be removed:

Denmark-Borders Canada (via Hans Island) and Germany

United Kingdom-Borders Cyprus (via Akrotiri and Dhekelia) and Spain (via Gibraltar)

Level 82

It explicitly excludes overseas territories. Gibraltar and the Cypriot bases are not part of the UK anyway.

I got six of them. I did not get Monaco. My mind was racing over all the extreme countries I could think of. The more I got to central and eastern Europe, the more confused I get, as I though of the huge quantity of borders there are in those countries...

Nice quizz. thank you.
