It does, but it's a tiny little bit of land at the very north. It has a short border with Russia there.

Exactly! The fact that it might share a border with Russia does not change its physical location. I would choose Sweden before I'd choose Norway as being farther east. Also, why is Latvia on the list but not Lithuania, Estonia or Poland?

Yep, Kazakhstan is (partially) in Europe, based on common definition. So are (parts of) Azerbaijan and Georgia north of the Caucasus mountain range, but not Armenia. Cyprus is more contentious, but the northern (Turkish) part and northern Nicosia is generally regarded to be in Europe, but not the Greek (southern) majority. If we are to include the sections of countries that are actually part of Europe such as Russia and Turkey, we should certainly apply the same standard elsewhere, too.

Wait...
You're arguing that the northern part, belonging to the mostly-Asian Turkey should be counted as Europe, while the southern majority, more closely tied to European Greece should be counted as Asian?

Norway happens to stretch quite a bit from the mainland west coast to the eastern border with Russia. Funny detail is that Norway is in both the most eastern and most western countries in Europe (and northern for that matter) ;)

Yeah, it doesn't help that the country is so far north that Kirkenes is roughly on the same longitude as Cairo, and Bergen a littler bit east of the Algiers. The distance between the two meridians is roughly only 1,000 km at Kirkenes latitude, but it's more than 2,700 km at Cairo latitude. A Mercator projection (or on any map) will always hold that kind of pitfalls. The furthest we go towards the poles, the most the notion of East and West becomes irrelevant.

if you zoom in on the map, you will note that the top part of Estonia is further east than Latvia.

No, it's not. Optical illusion as a result of flattening the globe. Look at a map with lines of longitude and you will see that although marginal, the easternmost point of Latvia is east of that of Estonia.

Since you are basing the quiz on the easternmost points of Europe, it would be great to include the countries with territory in Europe that Jetpunk don't consider European (Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey). I completely agree that these shouldn't be considered European for other purposes, but they still have territory in Europe.

I think they are correct not to include as, simply, it would cause a lot of confusion for people who don't recognise them as parts of europe.

Considering the lines of control, Latvia reaches eversoslightly further east than Estonia. If you consider the borders agreed on in the Treaty of Tartu, Estonia reaches further east.
