Does anyone know where I could find points of countries farthest from the border (or sea) and where countries are widest? Billions of websites out there and I can't find that. I'm trying to locate that point in Slovenia, but I'm not even sure whether it's in eastern or western Slovenia (probably eastern, but not necessarily). I'd also like to know the largest width of Slovenia and where it is. Anyone has a clue?

Seriously, I got there from "geographic centers" (or "centres"), which are apparently not easy to calculate and not quite what you want....

I would do it in specialist software. Freeware are these:

- google QGIS (software)
- google Geofabrik (shapefiles to software - each country on three levels)

The software has some tools to measuring.

It needs some time to get into.

You're right, that's not quite what I want. That point is closer to Austria than Croatia, so it can't be farthest from the border.

Don't they already have that calculated somewhere? Seriously, don't tell me no one has ever determined that point and where Slovenia is widest (and you don't need a Slovene to determine that). What about other countries?

I don't know, but those things are noted in Geography textbooks for grammar schools in Slovakia I've already taught from those. There were also some fun facts, like how many times can all people from Slovakia draw a boundary if all stand side by side and hold hands. It was 4 times. Can't believe Slovenia does not have such.

As for Hungary the biggest distance is Felsőszölnök-Tiszabecs ~ 530 km and the center is at Pusztavacs.

greatest distance is not the same as longtitudial or latitudial difference. But to be clear, I 've just done a small calculation (it might be enough just for curiosity) and the greatest distance is 258 km from the seaside to the easternmost point. As for the latitudial difference, the greatest is the eastern one (it is approx 160 km)

I'll try to find a better view.

Hehe, EE deli. The sweets are from CZ and SK, from Poland the pig feets. But the question is, do they have any good ham and bacon?

Who would say that there is some CZ SK community out there in Jersey. What do you think, does Jagr drop by sometimes?

Tiszabecs is not the easternmost village of Hungary, that award goes to Garbolc.

The area of Felsőszölnök includes the westernmost point of HU and since the country has a "horn" (or I dunno how to call it) there, it's likely that this village will come up when you are trying to find the greatest distance - and it does.

We have many things calculated, but I've never seen where Slovenia is widest (I can imagine, but I want precise location).

It says 248 km for the greatest distance on the Internet. As for width, I don't mean it as "perpendicular to length", I mean it as "shortest distance between two opposite lines". Central Slovenia is narrowest between the southernmost point of Austria and Prezid (Croatia), but where is it widest?

I have no idea what month "listopad" is, but I've always liked the sound of it.

Continuing on the OT - I really like the slavic month names. For what I understand: the pretty month, the grass month, the falling leave month, the snow month, etc
We also used to have those (the candle month, the leaf month, the frost month, the ghost month, etc) but we switched to the regular Jan, Feb, Mar, Mai, ...

Btw, the old Slovenian expression for a motorway (avtocesta) is "avtomobilska cesta". Sounds archaic, but I still remember it was used until some 20 years ago.

NB Road_UK: The only reference to them are the nick names from folklore and stories about January and February - Golyam Sechko and Malak Sechko (big and small sechko respectively).

As promised, The French "Republican" Calendar. ("Republican" as opposed to revolutionary, although that's when it started.

Romanian also has own months names. They are usually listed on Orthodox calenders along with January, February, etc
