Videos explaining things. Mostly over topics like history, geography, economics and science.
We believe that the world is a wonderfully fascinating place, and you can find wonder anywhere you look. That is what our videos attempt to convey.
Currently, I try my best to release one video every week. Bear with me :)


  • Thanks for this interesting video, can you tell me please where is located the beautiful city that was shown in the 4.o8 mn of the video.

  • Why didn't Germany use the river to invade Switzerland in WWII?

  • Laos is famous landlocked country!

  • Get over it, Bolivia.

  • Because there’s rivers around their borders then, they sail through those rivers to get to seas and oceans plus they can transport goods from other countries by using those rivers sooooo never put trash on bodies of water and land of course!

  • soon Nepal is also going to have it's navies though it's landlocked..🇳🇵🇳🇵

  • Sounds like they got the wrong idea group. Its an easy mistake for a newbie in eu4.

  • During the 1950s the Communist country of Czechoslovakia had an Admiralty of the Navy, even though it was landlocked and had no Navy. They also had a Minister of Justice.....

  • You're talking land locked countries with a navy and you show a warship from the country with the longest coastline. Not smart. 0:43

  • Interesting

  • Chile is greedy for coast. And their all like "oh. I only want the coast. I won't go that far inland". That's like " oh. I'll only eat every muffin top. You guys can all have the rest of the muffin. May as well be called The Coast.

    • I beleive Chile will one day claim every coast. Literally every other nation will be landlocked by usually only about 30 miles

  • honestly the mongol navy one was just... weird

  • Do they have submarines?

  • They want to conquer closeby coastal cities run by other countries

  • the music in your videos are amazing

  • You forgot Uzbekistan

  • Hungary has a navy? Wow..

  • Poor Bolivia...😭

  • So Switzerland’s navy is cargo ships? This video was stupid

  • Britain: Brittania rules the sea *sees mongolias navy* Britain: im sorry master

  • As a American it’s weird to think swimming isn’t a common skill

  • 1:23 Only one person can swim, that can't be good =D

  • Well they have some sort of ships because they can fight on river idk

  • Interesting that, at :43 they show the old DDG283 HMCS Algonquin - a Canadian warship. If one country is NOT landlocked, it's Canada.

  • They can just use Toyota Corollas

  • landlocked countries have navy? top10 questions science cant answer

  • Nothing can stop the mighty Mongolian navy

  • Why can I see the title in German?

  • Chile, can you just give that piece of coast back to Bolivia!!

  • 0:42 That naval ship is Canadian, Canada isnt landlocked.

  • You forgot about the patrol boats of the swiss army on lake constance. Wich is a water border between switzerland, germany and austria.

  • That background music sucks big pee pee

  • Its funny lebanon cant even do exports, has bad water, and is blazing hot in byblos, its literally on the coast. Lebanon is a mountain on the ocean

  • Just because a country owns a couple ships does NOT mean they have a Navy, fucktard! A "Navy" is an Armed Force...fucking morons!!!

  • Where is skillshare?

  • dont forget that Switzerland trade more with nazi's than with allies!

  • Look out Japan. I think Mongolia and it's tugboat are about ready to try to take over your country again. Intelligent reports state they have mounted a damn catapault on that thing AND they got lifejackets for the crew that can't swim. Beware!

  • Lake Kvövlövs löl!!1

  • Can the Swiss trade along the Rhône river?

  • bolivia sucks

  • Where is Belarus you stupid?

  • Switzerland has one for very real reasons but Boliva does not? Please explain how having a navy to stop crime and drug trafficking to improve the quality of life for your citizens is not a very real reason? I'm confused.

  • Bolivie start a war already

  • They have navies cuz they have rivers

  • Our beloved neighboring country Switzerland highlighted in the thumbnail...

  • Good

  • *wOaH*

  • I live in Switzerland!🇨🇭🙃

  • What's the Name of the beat in the Backround?

  • Many of these landlocked nations are located on major rivers, so their having navies makes quite a bit of sense.

  • Chile ur fucking near water why the fuck u invade Bolivia

  • lol bolivia and chile, chile gotta have dat coast

  • in a shellnut i guess *Mongolia* -Russia: hey man, we need some high ass safety to trasnport the oil in this lake *Bolivia* Bolivia: WE GONNA GET OUR SEA BACK COÑO Chile: fuck off lel Bolivia: *plays danny g in spanish* Chile: fuck off or war, little africa Bolivia: ok, but since your natural disaster rate is similar to japan the get ready to get nuked boi Switz Switz: well, we have a river so why not do a navy that were never going to use since we dont go to wars

  • why do they have barcodes on Norwegian ships.... So when they come back to port they can .... *Scandinavian*

  • You spelled khövsgöl so wrong

  • I live in French Switzerland

  • Wait, how did Swiss get permission from Nazi Germany to use their river-occupied territory for their merchant ships?

    • Emiya Kiritsugu pretty much. Of course, there was always the fear of a invasion. The nazis had plans. The best developed one was operation Tannenbaum

    • So it basically a win-win situation where everyone can live happily in Swiss? XD

    • We were the trading place for everyone in europe at that timeperiod. Even enemies did their business on safe ground in switzerland, in reason of the neutrality. Nazi-germany didn't want to lose that opportunity, otherwise they would lost their trading partners for iron and other most importend items at the WW II.

    • Emiya Kiritsugu the nazis had a large deposit of gold in Switzerland, plus they wanted to utilise the Gotthard route to easily trade with Italy. They basically just let us use the Rhine while we let them use the Gotthard route.

  • 0:58 the mongols owned Korea too

  • 0:44 That’s A Canadian ship look at the flag Canada is not landlocked it has 3 oceans

    • just stock footage meant to represent navies in general.

  • The thing is that bolivia attacked chile first together with argentina and lost and now complain...

  • I don't think having a navy and having commercial ships are quite the same. But I did enjoy the video 😀

  • Yepp, landlocked Hungary has three tiny ships, mostly to help demolition experts take out WW2 bombs from rivers.

  • If travelling across Axis territory on land or in the air was too dangerous then how is travelling by boat down river any better?

  • Garbage video. A tugboat is not a naval vessel. And transport ships are not a navy. Complete garbage video, thumbs down and unsub

  • Next video:why sealocked and landlocked countries have airplanes?

  • Bruh you forgot Serbia -.-

  • The undefeated Mongolian navy... OP pls nerf.
