However, the previous record, as you understand, there is one important feature - this street is not entirely in the city. Therefore, if it is considered the longest street in the city, it is probably worth noting street Avenida Rivadavia, Argentina in Buenos Aires. Even if it is not the longest (14, 6 km), then by the number of houses numbered exactly - 11800 rooms.

The longest city highway has a legendary Ukrainian Krivoi Rog. Its length - 124 km, and it consists of a couple of dozen streets.

However, if you start only on the distance between the even and odd side of the house, the widest street in the world will be considered street Schmidt located his odd party in the Russian city Yeisk, and even - in the Ukrainian Mariupol. Separating the two sides of the street ... Taganrog Bay of the Azov Sea :) At the same time, the width of the street is not less than 68 kilometers (distance directly across the bay).
