Trace the Coast of Europe with a Map

Starting from the top right corner, trace the outline of the European continent anticlockwise by correctly naming each country along the way.
External territories and micronations are included!
We are considering the Caspian Sea to be a lake, and therefore irrelevant to this quiz

This was fun, nice job. But shouldn't Georgia be included since the Europe-Asia border runs through it?

Level 66

Thank you! I've seen maps that split Georgia between the continents but I believe it's just as correct to draw the line at the border with Russia.
+12
Level 71
Jun 8, 2020
Nevermind, it seems I was wrong anyway. The Caucasus Mountains extend into southern Russia, meaning that although parts of northern, inland Georgia can be classified as European the entire coastline is definitely Asian.
+1
Level 72
Jun 8, 2020
Yes, I think so. And also, shouldn't there be more to-ing and fro-ing between Netherlands and Belgium?

The bottom bit of Zealand is seperated by a river entering Belgium, but I don't believe rivers should count as coastline.
+12
Level 73

Excellent! One small suggestion: give borders alternating colours so you can see the different countries forming the coastline. Or actually even better would be if eg France's coastlines have the same colour etc
+1
Level 66
Jun 9, 2020
Cheers! I do quite like that idea, although I cannot implement it now, as the borders are coloured in altogether, based on whether or not the answer is correct (rather than individually through their ID).

I see. if I remember correctly I managed to get around this problem this way: have the 'coloured borders' always visible but covered by 'white borders' which correspond to answers and become invisible when guessed - see this quiz

Thanks to the Curonian and Vistula spits, the coastline goes Lithuania / Russia / Lithuania / Russia / Poland / Russia / Poland (although this requires passing through two lagoons).

I'm not planning on including that thus far, both for simplicity's sake and also I'm not sure where to draw the line on what constitutes a coastline.

Crimea is part of Ukraine not Russia. Russia is illegally occupying it. A significant majority of the world's countries have made it clear that they recognise that Crimea is a part of Ukraine.
+2
Level 66
Dec 28, 2020
Russia currently has control over the Crimean peninsula (as well as de facto control over parts of Eastern Ukraine). I am still not sure where Jetpunk gets their maps from, but the source seems to value depicting actual control over specific regions, rather than honouring sentiments (this goes for the Crimean situation as well as the border dispute in Kashmir, among other minor disputes). I agree with this, to the point in which I have drawn dotted lines to represent other territories such as Abkhazia or North Cyprus which are outside of the authority of the countries which the international community agrees as controlling said territory.
+8
Level 66
Dec 28, 2020
That being said, if you wish you can simply type 'Ukraine' three times to complete its coastline on the Black Sea. You are never forced to type 'Russia' in order to complete Crimea.

It would also be helpful to specify how you're dividing Europe and Asia. No matter what you decide, people will complain - but most cartographers draw the line north of Georgia and Azerbaijan, through the Caspian Sea, and include a small chunk of westernmost Kazakhstan.
+3
Level 66
Jan 25, 2021
Perhaps I will solve this with a caviat specifying the Caspian Sea is considered a lake here. I do agree that the Northeastern bit of Kazakhstan is European though I hope any other definition will be clear to people when the quiz stops at Russia (rather than Georgia, that is).

The Dutch coastline really looks decidedly odd to me. Noord Holland, in particular, seems to have been shaved completely off the continent. I can find Europe outline images on Google that look exactly like the map that's been used here. But I can also find lots and lots of better ones...

Gibraltar under control of the United Kingdom (and therefore it is also a type-in). I believe that all territories should be included by default on a quiz like this, unless otherwise specified, as they are part of the overall coastline.

It is occupied by Russia at the moment. The best maps depict what the situation is, not what the map creator thinks it should be.
