In which country is Jordan in?
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is located in Western Asia and is circa. 90,000 Square kilometers in size. This makes it about as big as our neighboring country Austria. Jordan borders Iraq, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Syria, as well as the Palestinian territories in the West Bank, which is occupied by Israel. Jordan has access to the Red Sea and a small, 26-kilometer-long seashore in the south of Aqaba. It also borders the Dead Sea.
Although Jordan is a small country, it is diverse and interesting. The country is divided into three larger landscapes. The Jordan Trench runs from north to south in the west of the country to reach the lowest point of the Earth at the Dead Sea.
To the east, the East Jordanian mountainous country stretches with mountains up to 1754 meters. The largest cities in Jordan, such as the capital Amman, are also located here. In the east, a huge desert landscape adjoins, which also occupies most of the country – about two-thirds of the land area.
The highest mountain in Jordan is located in the East Jordanian Highlands, very close to the border with Saudi Arabia. Jabal Umm ad-Dami is the name of the mountain with its 1854 meters. The largest cities are Amman, Aqaba and Irbid in the north of the country.
