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.

Cyprus is culturally and politically very Europian, but geographically it is in Asia. Jetpunk and most of the Jetpunk quizzes are about Geography so it makes more than sense to say that Cyprus is in Asia. I also firmly believe that the border between Europe and Asia is quite clear. Since Turkey is in Asia for the vast majority, it definitely makes sense that Cyprus is Asian, because it clearly sits beneath the Asian part of Turkey. And also if you look at the nearest mainland to Cyprus, then those are all Asian countries as well. Plus there is really no need to discuss this since Jetpunk says that it is in Europe and they will not change this no matter how many countries there are, and I couldn't agree more.

Wait until you find out who Eurovision says is in Europe.

(On a serious note though, the continents were absolutely not created to signify a cultural distinction, given Greeks lived in both Europe and Asia when they came up with the idea, and Greek cultural influence existed across the Eastern Mediterranean when the Romans solidifed the definitions. The continental boundaries were designed to be useful to Greek mariners who placed the Aegean Sea at the center of the world.)

What worth has your comment that is so great that it could settle this argument to your side?

As said before it is all European except in the geographic part, so in my opinion it should be counted as European and a lot of institutions do it as well.

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......

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.
