Ghana: The closest country to the center of the world

The closest country to the center of the world

A lover of geography like me could not miss to post this.

If there is a country at the center of the world, that is Ghana! 😀

Ghana lies between latitudes of 4° N and 12°N, and longitudes 4°W and 2°E and this means that it’s the country closer to the  point 0°, 0° which is located in the Atlantic ocean.

The Prime Meridian (Greenwich) passes through the city of Tema, 25km west of Accra.
