List of largest lake in every country in Europe?

  • Start date
I'm searching a list of the largest lake in every European country. Of course, I can google them one by one, but it would be easier if there is a list somewhere on the internet. However, I can't find any...
 
Here's a start:

Funny, I thought the Nile was in Europe.

The closest thing that I could find in the country data in Mathematica 7 to "largest lake" is "WaterArea", here is a list (the water area is expressed in square kilometers):

In : = TableForm[{#, CountryData[#, "WaterArea"]} & /@ CountryData["Europe"]]
