Slovakia has 5 borders (the one with Hungary being the longest and the one with Ukraine being the shortest)

Hungary
Czech Republic
Poland
Austria
Ukraine

The Netherlands borders only Germany and Belgium. If you consider Flanders and Wallonie as countries, then it's 3 (though the border with Wallonie is very tiny).

My country doesn't count, but if we count my other relatives' country (Germany), the longest border would be with either Poland or Austria

I'd also count Denmark (sea border) - just as I would count Denmark to Sweden, Estonia to Finland and France to England.

Anyway

Italy
1) France
2) Switzerland
3) Austria
4) Slovenia

Why not counting Croatia or Albania for Italy? I tend to think that if we take in count countries that are separeted by sea areas it will be more difficult to mesure (what is the maximum sea distance for being a "sea border"?)
