European Countries and Regions

Europe is the smallest continent in the world after Oceania, but in terms of population it is the third largest after Asia and Africa. Since the 18th century, the border between Europe and Asia has generally been considered to run along the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, the Caucasus, the Black Sea, the Bosphorus, the Marmara Sea and the Dardanelles. The Mediterranean in the south separates Europe from Africa. The western border is the Atlantic Ocean, where Iceland is the western outpost. The North limits the Arctic Ocean. The northern tip of the Svalbard archipelago is Europe’s northernmost point.

Area: 10 180 000 kmĀ²

In practice, the border with Europe is usually drawn with greater regard for politics, economics and culture. This has led to the existence of several “different” Europes, which are not always identical in size, and which include or exclude different countries based on the definition of Europe used.

Europe holds just under 12% of the earth’s population, spread over just over 7% of the earth’s land area. The most populous countries were in 2006 apart from Russia: Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy and Ukraine.
