nope, geographically 1/3 of Russia is Europe, ethnic russians are europeans. Turkey is Asia historically and culturally, always has been. Geographically a tiny part of Istanbul is on the european continent, but does not make the whole country and their inhabitants europeans.

Russia is definitely Europe. Turkey is questionable. My soul tells me that Cyprus is a European country too.

Russia would be regarded by most as Europe. Cyprus is in culturally and ecomomically part of Europe, and is a member of the European Union even if it is georgaphically boarderline (though the world quiz also has Cyprus as not European). Turkey is between 2 continuents, Europe & Middle East, though more of it is out of Europe than part of Europe.

That 'small' piece of land is several times the size of the biggest "Europe-proper" country (France). Look it up

if you're not sure about whether russia is right, why don't you just type it in anyway?

If Russia is considered to be Europe, then shouldn't Georgia also be considered a European nation?

"generally considered to be part of Europe" = not russia
Mar 26, 2012

Russia is in both continents, the majority of the area is in asia but the majority of the population is in europe. But then again, turkey is in both continents, so if you count russia, you should count turkey

Russia is far and away considered part of Europe. Ethnic Russians stem from the Viking's nad the Russian royal family was a european family

Turkey, Cyprus and Georgia should be included

Russia is a European country because its historical origins (slavic) and capital region are European. Turkey has a only a small piece of land in Europe, and its origins are central / western Asian. Cyprus is much closer to Anatolia or Syria than to Europe -- the one thing European about it is its history as a Greek colony. Even though Georgia adopted much of European culture, they are Caucasian, not European.
Mar 26, 2012

Russia is not a European country, it is a country that spans Europe and Asia (and though the majority of its land is in Asia, its 2 most populous cities are in Europe). It has less to do with historic origins than that by defintion the "border" between Europe and Asia includes the Ural Mountains which run through Russia.

Russia is a quarter in Europe but mostly in Asia.

i went by teams involved in UEFA competitions, both turkey and cyprus are, so is russia btw
Mar 27, 2012

But if we go by UEFA, then we have to break out England, Scotland, Wales, etc. instead of just UK, no?

Also Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. And by the same logic, Australia is in Asia.

I think we should- Countries the European song contest haven't been listed

While we're at it let's just lump the whole world into two continents, Old World and New World, and then degenerate into tribal bands of barterers so quizzes like this will no longer exist.

No Israel can't be included because of course through Jetpunk's user quizzes, Israel is well known to border the Indian Ocean.

Isn't Turkey in Europe and Asia? Istanbul is the only city in the world listed on two continents. How can a city in Turkey be in Europe and not the country that contains it?
Mar 27, 2012

If you can argue whether Russia and Georgia and Turkey are parts of Europe, then why don't we argue Armenia and Azerbaijan as well?

Where is Cyprus and Turkey? These two are definately considered as part of Europe, I can understand about Russia being debated as it has links with Asia too. Also the last comment about Armenia and Azerbaijan .... they get into the Eurovision Song Contest every year I guess they've been adopted in.

The Eurovision Song Contest taught me the countries of Europe xD
Apr 10, 2012

If you use Eurovision as the decider then Israel is in Europe. I was always taught the division between Europe and Asia was the Bosoporos Straits, Black Sea and Ural Mountains, which makes Russia in Europe but not Turkey or Cyprus.

Don't go buy Eurovision, they tried to get syria or one of those middle eastern countries in, but they wouldn't recognise Israel for voting purposes. As far as Russia goes, given that most Russian history took place in "European" Russia, and most of "Asian" Russia is empty of people, and that the capital is in Europe, I would say that russia is at least acceptable in a countries of europe quiz.

i think that you need to add in Cyprus and Turkey

Cyprus is not geographically a part of Europe even though it's in the European Union. Also, Eurovision doesn't only have European countries competing in it. There are also some countries from the Middle East and Caucasia. Once even a country from Africa, Morocco competed. Russia should be counted as a part of Europe as well since its capital, most of its population and history are in Europe. Also, around one third of Europe's area is Russia. Turkey only has a small part of it in Europe so it's not actually needed here. Georgia and Azerbaijan have the same thing as Turkey.

Border between Europe and Asia is generally considered to be the Ural mountains. As a result, the following countries are in europe: Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan...and of course Cyprus. Turkey is partially in Europe also.
Oct 25, 2012

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe: "Europe is generally 'divided' from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas." By that definition, (see the map on said page for visual reference) 5 countries span the division: Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Georgia, and Turkey. The latter four have a very small piece in europe, relative to the size of their respective countries. The bulk of Russia's population, however, resides in the European section of the country, so it is generally considered European, even without considering the Kalinigrad exclave between Poland and Lithuania. Also, note that Cyprus is clearly Asian.
Oct 26, 2012

Cyprus is clearly European. It is not part of the Asiatic mainland. It's historical heritage is Greek/Turkish. It is in the EU and uses the Euro as it's currency. I'm sure you'll find Cypriots would not consider themselves Asian at all.
Oct 26, 2012
(68)
Seriously, look at the map. Cyprus is separated from Europe by ASIA Minor. Sure it's not part of the Asiatic "mainland" (and neither are Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, etc) but it is part of the Asiatic tectonic plates. National Heritage is irrelevant, or else we might as well include Australia in Europe due to it's history in the British Empire. Similarly, EU membership is meaningless to the discussion of where a country is geographically--even the US was approached with membership in the EU. Guess we'll have to jump across the pond. Lastly-- I know several Cypriots, of Greek, Turkish and (gasp) mixed descent. About the only thing they agree on when it comes to Cyprus is that it is located off the Asian, and not European, coast.

Missing Cyprus (member state of the EU) and Turkey (which although its capital isn't in Europe, is most definitely a European State given that it owns land in Europe and share more with Europe than it does with Asia; /controversial).

You're missing armenia and cyprus

Vatican City tripped me up. On several of the other quizzes it is down as just "Vatican" but on this one it must be "Vatican City." Maybe Vatican City, Czech Republic, and Bosnia and Herzegovina could all be the same where you only have to type the first part of the name.
Feb 10, 2014

Just Vatican will work now. Thanks.

Cyprus should definitively be in : it's half greek and turkish, it has the Euro, and all sports teams in the different sports (football, basketball...) plays in European competitions, not Asian...
Mar 14, 2014
(32)
I think countries that cause discussions like that (Cyprus, Turkey in that case) should just be in the quiz whatsoever. If there's an Asian version there as well. I'm sure even people who are from these countries are in two minds about it.

Turkey and Cyprus are like Russia. They can both fit into Europe and Asia. If it has to go in one, I would say turkey and Russia in Asia and Cyprus in Europe

Since Ukraine is in Europe. If you draw a straight line down then most of turkey is in Europe and that would make cypus in Europe. Cyprus is equal distance from turkey as it is Syria

Or since Europe is north of the tropic of capricorn then you can draw a straight line too and even China and Usa are Europe! -- There's a sea in between Ukraine and Turkey. Seas/oceans separate continents. On another note: I forgot Croatia! I surely know it's there. That's what I get for not doing it any sort of order.
