2. Just because a country is in the EU, doesn't mean it's in Europe. By that definition, Switzerland isn't in Europe.
3. Cyprus is closer to Asia geographically.
In other words, Eurovision participance does not say much about European boundaries, despite the name.
but i get it there is some serious overlap with europe and asia..... why don't we just stuff classing them as separate continents and call it all eurasia for crying out loud... and a single america? so 5 continents, not 7.....
a weird jump in conclusions
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
Other case is Gibraltar and the UK.

This is a geography quiz so above all the place has to be part of Europe geographically before you consider anything else. Obviously this is muddied a bit by politics because defining something as an 'overseas territory' is political but as long as you think of it first as a geography quiz, then it makes sense.
Also, Spain should be much more south since the Canary Islands and more south than Greece
Vatican city is 41 54’ and kosovo 41 51’.
Well, I still got Russia.
also, what about Andorra, Monaco and Vatican?
