Driving the 15 highest paved roads of Europe
Europe is the sixth largest continent in size. It extends from Iceland (west) to the Ural Mountains of Russia (east). It’s bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
Europe has several important mountain ranges. The longest ones are Scandinavian Mountains, Carpathian Mountains, Alps, Caucasus Mountains, Apennine Mountains, Balkan & Rhodope Mountains and Pyrenees. Most mountain ranges are poorly populated due to the harsh climate, difficult access and short growing seasons.
