Jan 18, 2016
Oi! Stop whining! STeFF is curious, so let's give her a thoughtful answer. And the answer is, that some books and websites place Cyprus in Asia, and others place it in Europe, so using the brackets here kinda hedges bets between both options.
+1
level 27
Jan 18, 2016
I don't understand why sometimes it's in Asia as it is in the EU.
+2
level 56
Jan 18, 2016
Being part of some organization does not move the country closer to the "geographical" continent. E.g. Israel is part of the UEFA but noone in their right mind would suggest it is part of the European continent. Same goes for Cyprus though this case is a bit different since the country is on an island located on the Mediterranean sea and therefore it is harder to define whether it is part of one or the other continent (where I come from all the Caribbean islands are considered to be part of the North America even though some of those are just miles away from the South America). To make it even worse the island is divided culturally.

And geographically, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia are in Asia (most of them lies south of the Caucasus Mountains) but all three are part of the Council of Europe.

Why doesn’t jetpunk just choose one continent to be as the “correct” one that Cyprus is in?
+1
level 67
Dec 8, 2017
Jetpunk does have a standard when it comes to Cyprus (and Russia, for that matter). However, it gets debated and argued so frequently that many quizzes simply throw it in automatically to try and sidestep the debate.
+1
level 45
Nov 19, 2017
because it is half ruled by Greece and half ruled by Turkey and and as Turkey is not counted as continental Europe it is in brackets as it is half European half Asian
+1
level 47
Dec 2, 2017
Half of it isn't ruled by Greece. ~2/3 is owned by the Republic of Cyprus, which isn't controlled by Greece. Turkey, however, illegally controls the other ~1/3.

This quiz should accept Czechia for Czech Republic like most others already do. I believe that became their official shortened name back in April. It's basically the same thing the Slovak Republic did with the name Slovakia, but it's less well-known because the change was so recent and quiet.

May 25, 2016
Has anyone ever tried googling Europe or Asia? Or looked it up on Wikipedia? There's even an article about Continental borders. Russia is always counted as part of Europe while Turkey and Cyprus aren't. When I had to learn the countries of Europe in school that's the way I learned it as well. People once decided those borders. There are century-old maps that show the exact outline known today.

78% of the population and 25% of the area of Russia are in Europe.
+1
level 67
Dec 8, 2017
If 25% of the area is in Europe, that means 75% is in Asia. And since this quiz is about geography, I don't really think the population bit matters that much. Anyway, I'm not asking or expecting you to change it, just expressing my annoyance at the standard way it's classified, since it's very counterintuitive to me.

Hey now... I'm Belgian and Cyprus can be wherever it wants to be for all I care. And I've asked around, fellow countrymen and - women agree with me: If Cyprus wants to be in Asia, it can be; if it wants to be in Europe, that is fine by us as well. It can even be in Africa for all we care. And it's Belgian fries. The other ones are just greasy, wrongly fried pieces of potato. All hail Leo. Face.
