Yeah...about that. What is the agreed upon boundary between European and Asian Russia on this site? Russia doesn't dip far enough south until the east side of Georgia. I would think that would be Asia, that far east.

We count the Ural Mountains as the start of Asian Russia.

Yes, the Urals are the eastern border, but the Caucasus are the southern border. If you consider the entirety or Russia bordering Georgia to be European (which is where the 41 11 comes from), you would also then consider Azerbaijan to be European, since some of that extends north of the Caucasus. My point is that Russia is a problematic inclusion here since it's not a well defined boundary.

Is there a part of Serbia that is further south than the southern tip of Kosovo or Montenegro?

The latitude cited for Serbia suggests that Quizzer6794 doesn't think Kosovo exists.

Cyprus is geographically closer to Asia and infant closer to Africa than it is to Europe. The border between Europe and Asia goes south from the Bosphorus Strait. If you wanted to include Cyprus you would have to include the rest of Turkey.

Or we could acknowledge that Europe and Asia are not two separate continents by any logical physical geographic standard. And if that's the case, then Europe exists as a continent only in a cultural/historical sense, in which case Cyprus, Russia, Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, etc. are all open for discussion.

Surely since Australia competed in the Eurovision Song Contest, they should be included?
reply

Oct 24, 2016

Of course, because membership in song contests is how we set geographical boundaries.

besides Australia, all EBU members are eligible, and in turn all European AND Mediterranean countries (roughly speaking) can be members. That's why Israel participates and why Morocco participated in the past. In other words, Eurovision participance does not say much about European boundaries, despite the name.

I would contend Turkey should bump Russia off this list. Both are countries with a majority of their territory in Asia, but some indisputably in Europe, and the European part of Turkey is more southerly than the European part of Russia.

The part of Russia that dips down the furthest near Georgia is far east of Cyprus and Istanbul. That area should be considered Asia. Wikipedia doesn't help. They say Georgia is at the crossroads of Asia and Europe. That could mean, Montana is at the crossroads of the USA and Canada, yet it is defined as a part of USA. Why can't they be more specific in regards to countries in a continent? They say the Ural Mountains are the eastern border of Europe. Since they stop above Kazahkstan, but it's in Asia even though it is west of the Urals. Some maps show the Caucasus countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia as part of Europe. They are way to the east of Turkey, with Azerbaijan above Iran. If you drew a line at the Urals at about 60 degrees East lat, then the Middle East is all west of 60 degrees East lat. Jetpunk quizzes list Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia in Asia, yet maps of Europe typically show these 3 in Europe. The Formula 1 European Grand Prix is in Baku, Azerbaijan

Canary Islands are the southernmost part of Spain and they are certainly not an oversea territory. Other case is Gibraltar and the UK. To be discussed: Russia's southernmost part is it really Europe?

Cannot agree with that thinking, if Turkey is included (and even Russia in this instance) then Cyprus should be included. I cannot see any reason for not including it in this quiz.

That's simply not true. Cyprus is further south than Turkey. If Greece is included, then so should Cyprus! Period.

Further to my comment above, it you look at a map (or google earth) you see the given Russian point of 41.11s is in the Dagestan Republic, further east than Georgia, Armenia and parts of Azerbaijan which are all west of the Ural mountains so how is it they are not included in Europe in this instance?
