The total area of France is 547,000 sq km.

Relief. The relief of France is of three types: mountains, plateaus and plains. The Pyrenees, the Alps and the Jura Mountains are parts of the Alpine system. The Central Massif, the Armorican Massif, the Vosges and the Ardennes are the destroyed remnants of the ancient Hercynian Mountains. The Parisian basin (the Northern French Depression), the Garonne Depression (the Aquitanian basin) and the grabens of the Rhône and the Sadne are plains with small-scale altitude amplitudes.

Mountains. The Jura Mountains, along which the border with Switzerland passes, are located between Geneva and Basel. They have folded structure and are created of limestone. The mountains are lower and less dissected than the Alps, though were formed in the same era and have a strong geologic link with the latter.

The Central Massif located between the basins of the Loire, the Garonne and the Rhône is the greatest massif that originated after the destruction of the ancient Hercynian Mountains. In the present times these volcanoes have stopped their activity.

The Armorican Massif occupying the territory of Brittany and Cotentin Peninsula is less lifted and less crack-covered than the Central French Massif. Despite low heights, the Armorican Massif is deeply cut with river valleys and has few flat areas.

Mont Blanc (4,807 m) is the highest peak in Western Europe.

Rivers. Four major rivers of France are the Seine, the Loire, the Garonne and the Rhône; the longest of them is the Loire (1,000 m).

Lakes. Lake of Geneva (Lake Leman, Lac Léman) is the second largest sweet lake in Central Europe located in Switzerland and France. It is the largest tarn lake as well.
