How Far From Saint Paul to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Saint Paul to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Saint Paul and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 919 miles [1,479 km]<2> to the west southwest (WSW). If you could drive a straight line from Saint Paul to Parliament Hill, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take most of two days to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 53 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 36 days.
    • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 4,652 miles [7,486.7 km] and it lies to the east northeast (ENE).<5>
    • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 5,379 miles [8,656.7 km] and it lies to the east northeast (ENE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Saint Paul) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Saint Paul. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.4667, Longitude: -57.7167    
<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Saint Paul to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 293.112 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 289.297 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 287.336 degrees.
