It's a legitimate question and will pop up with each new member. After all, Cyprus is politically, financially, culturally and historically quite European.

Except that there's no strict scientific definition of what makes a continent a "continent". The geographic distinction also has historical, political and cultural elements to it. At the end of the day, it's a human convention with a certain arbitrary nature to it. So let's not pretend it's a hard and fast fact except to say that our faithful Quizmaster has decided it's so for the purpose of this site.

If it weren't for cultural differences, Europe and Asia would be considered the same continent. Culturally, Cyprus is much closer to Europe than to Asia. Putting Cyprus in Asia on the basis of geographic proximity undermines the entire reason for Asia being a separate continent in the first place; it doesn't make any sense under any sane definition. Cyprus is European and should be considered as such. Don't believe a random comment on www.jetpunk.com? Fine. Then why don't you ask the EUROPEAN UNION? It's time we stopped being stubborn and admitted that CYPRUS IS A EUROPEAN COUNTRY. Cyprus is in EUROPE, not Asia. Period. Case closed.

@matthew07, you're using a flawed argument. You claim that by saying Cyprus is in Europe, because it is a member of the EU, one it equally saying that Norway and Switzerland are not in Europe, because they are not members of the EU. That is like saying dogs are animals, because they are mammals, but crocodiles are not animals because they are not mammals. You don't have to be a mammal to be an animal. But to be a mammal, you certainly have to be an animal. Equally, you don't have to be an EU member to be located in Europe. But you certainly have to be located in Europe to be an EU member.

It is culturally in Europe and apparantly physically in Asia but Ukraine is more eastern than Cyprus and just because it is close to the Middle East does not mean it is in Asia.

Turkey is NOT part of Europe. Not geographically in whole, morally or in the development of human rights. Only Istanbul can be count to be part of Europe geographically. Turkey NOT!

Since I have been looking at a map of Turkey, Cyprus, Greece and Bulgaria for a while, it looks like most of Turkey is in Europe geographically then.

Since development of human rights is one of the main criteria to define whether a country is part of a continent, Turkey should not be considered part of Europe.

Sometimes I'm not sure about that. There are always discussion about England/Uk, Greenland/Denmark, Turkey/Europe, Russia/Europe and so on. So you never know...... And as the best example for that: please see the first comment under this quiz - its a level 63 - and do you think, this is a joke from player Thigamahoozit? I'm not sure about that. :)

If Monaco is on there? Why not France? Why is Monaco so much hotter?
+2
level 67
Jul 30, 2019
Monaco is in the south of France and on the Mediterranean, a large part of France is much further north which will bring the average temperature down a bit by itself but also there are lots of mountains in France where there will be lower temperatures in general, again bringing the average down a bit.
