The longest river in Europe, Asia, South America or Africa – which of them is the shortest in relation to the others? This question was answered by Mr. Jacek Iwaszko from Warsaw.

On his way to the million there were, among others geography question.
The shortest river is the longest river:

The longest river in Europe is the Volga, which measures 3,531 km. In Asia, the queen of rivers is the Yangtze – 6300 km. The longest river in South America is the Amazon, which, according to various calculations, is about seven thousand kilometers long. The Nile is the longest in Africa – 6,671 km.
