An ordinary map of the world gives us a wrong understanding of the true sizes of the countries on our Earth. The website thetruesize.com allows you to move landmasses all over the globe to see how large a country or continent really is.
Australia would cover nearly the complete European continent.
Brazil is surely enormous, if moved to Asia.
What happens to the giant Greenland, if it is moved around the map of the world? The enormous island looks way smaller in comparison with the USA or South America.
