Map of European Countries By The Nearest National Capital

Nearest National Capital: What would countries look like if their territory was determined by the distance to the nearest capital

I bring to your attention a rather interesting look at the issue of distances in countries and regions of the world.

On the map presented, the planet is divided into sectors, the number of which is equal to the number of countries, and each point in the sector gravitates to its nearest capital.

If we imagine that the territory of the countries would be formed according to this criterion, but without changing the location of the main cities, then the results would be surprising. Russia would part with the title of the largest country, losing to Kazakhstan and Mexico, North Korea entered the top ten, tiny East Timor, Bhutan and Finland would reach the size of China, and the United States and Brazil shrank to the level of a slightly plump Bolivia.

There is also such a version of the map, a little expanded and taking into account the Vatican, but without the names of the capitals, here it is more pleasant for someone.

Please note that on the Black Sea coast of Russia, approximately in the Anapa-Novorossiysk region, there is a small patch of territory that is closer to Ankara, and not to Chisinau or Tbilisi.

And on the next map, almost the whole world is divided solely on the basis of proximity to some European capitals, the “most extreme” in our case.

It seems striking, but Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is really equidistant from Moscow and Helsinki. The capital of Chukotka Anadyr is already much closer to Reykjavik than to Helsinki or Moscow.
