Why Countries Are Landlocked + Canals

11896 ratings | 1263630 views
Why are some countries landlocked? In the case of Bolivia its because they lost a war with Chile. Ethiopia and Serbia granted independence to the parts of their countries that had a coast. Some countries like uzbekistan, are so far inland that they are doubly landlocked, which means they are both landlocked and completely surrounded by other landlocked countries. When a country is landlocked it can be difficult for them to trade, and they often have to rely on their neighbours. In Europe, the danube river lets many landlocked countries have some access to the black sea. As well, many canals exist which lets small ships travel deep inland, providing some of the benefits of having a coast. Some countries may look landlocked, but when viewed closely you can see they have tiny coasts. You can watch this video I made which explores the weird borders in those situations: https://youtu.be/elybAzSVSHc

Hello everybody! There are a lot of new people now. Thanks everyone for subscribing! You may have heard that Youtube has been a bit unreliable lately. Though I think its been unreliable in my favour given that the channel only had about 500 subscribers a month ago. Still its probably best if there is a way for you to see new uploads without having to rely on youtube. The best way to do this is with an email list, so if you want you can follow this link to sign up for the list: http://eepurl.com/csi__f Also if you prefer you can use the subreddit, which has the added benefit of a comment section: https://www.reddit.com/r/VanDeGraph/

Go back to English class, dipshit. You said Armenia wrong. Armenia is not pronounced, “Armania,” you dumbass. I’m Armenian, just so you know.

Ethiopia: hey Sudan wanna play tag? Sudan: yea that’s a great idea! Then world war three happens Ethiopia:I’m glad Sudan is gone right Djibouti. Djibouti: wa wa what did you do to Sudan? Minutes of explaining later Ethiopia: and then I won the game. Djibouti: cool tell me that for bedtime!

Turkey: ok USA: should we do it Russia? Russia: yea we don’t need him Russia and USA eats Antarctica Ethiopia: Djibouti let’s eat Africa! Djibouti: yea let’s do it I do need more land All of Africa except Madagascar gets eaten by Ethiopia and Djibouti Ethiopia: that was a good breakfast right?

The designation of geographical regions has nothing to do with the language, but has to do with the ancient history of those regions and the Arabian Gulf belongs to the Arabs historically, mainly the Persians came from distant regions in Central Asia and Iran today is not the original home of the Persians while the Arabian Peninsula and the Arabian Gulf is the original home of the Arabs.

You might want to add that the Swiss city of Basel is a sea container port and the Swiss maintain a merchant ship fleet that sails up the Rhine river to Rotterdam, then out to the Atlantic.

It bugs me that everyone gets the map of Chile wrong... I don't blame them tho, I'm surprised they know that Chile exists, It would be too much if they knew the details of how Chile expanded to the south.
