Longest Rivers in Europe

Top 30 Longest Rivers in Europe. But Where Does Europe End?

The prize for “The Longest Rivers in Europe” goes to… the Volga! It’s a truly awesome river in many ways. At some points the Volga river is so wide you can’t even see the other side. The Volga delta is also the biggest estuary in Europe. During WWII the banks of the Volga witnessed the bloody battle for Stalingrad and it’s still a major source of Russian caviar which is harvested from mature female dead Sturgeon fish despite high pollution levels.
