Actually, UK has land borders with Ireland, Spain (Gibraltar) and Cyprus (Akrotiri & Dhekelia). Otherwise, there should be a warning about oversea territories not taken into account.

helllooooo ? Again this debate ?? Althought Cyprus belongs to the UE, is politically bounded to Europe and all its sports teams plays in european leagues (as Israel, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Kazakhstan, for example), Cyprus is GEOGRAPHICALLY an asian country... take it as it is.

You shouldn't tell quiz creators what to do without some supporting evidence.

As nearly all the veterans of this site know, Cyprus is geographically located in Asia, regardless of political or cultural connections to Europe.

Exactly. If we're going by cultural connection and not geographical location, Australia should be European. It's just silly.

I've followed the Cyprus thread with amusement and interest today! What no-one seems to be picking up on is that continents are completely artificial constructs. There is no "official" delimitation of continental borders; there is no benefit to a country whether it gets grouped in with one continent or other, and most ludicrously, despite continents being loosely grouped around giant landmasses, people seem to want to shoehorn island countries into being a part of one continent or another. You see, for example, Trinidad & Tobago, geologically and geographically connected to South America, being classed as "North America" on many websites (including this one). Cue debates about Cyprus, Seychelles, and bordering areas like whether Egypt encroaches on Asia and Indonesia is partly in Oceania (via the island of New Guinea). All good fun, but most importantly, let's accept there is no "correct" location for Cyprus. It's kinda Europe and kinda Asia, that's all.

good grief, guys, might as well question the definition of continents. there might be just three. or maybe theres dozens.

Although VPA does have a point: the border with Switzerland is entirely the 80-metre-wide Rhine River. Does that make it a "land" border?
+1

I don't see any such requirement.

No, not the entire border. Liechtenstein is roughly triangular with a longer east and west border and a smaller south one. The west and south borders are both with Switzerland, but only the west one is along the Rhine.

I think land borders should be added to the description as many of these countries share more borders, just not land ones. Aso, Denmark technically is connected with Sweden via the Øresund Bridge giving it two land borders.

This list is only so long because they will let any fruit stand next to a semi-organized circle of cottages be a "country" in Europe.

Not any semi-organised circle of cottages. Just ones that happen to be the headquarters of the world's largest religious organisation, are tax havens for the leaders of other countries, are shoved up a mountain somewhere or on a remote island so that nobody can be bothered to conquer them, or some combination of the above (I can't imagine the UK, Ireland, Denmark or Portugal come under the category of circles of cottages). The list would only be so short for continental North America because they will allow any roughly-sliced third of a continent with a few extra disconnected appendages added on based on who will sell it, with little in common except a common language, currency and government (whose power is often delegated to local governments) be a "country" there.

No matter what your personal belief is about Cyprus, this site considers it part of Asia. If you don't like it then stop taking quizzes on this site. Get over it already.

Hey! Chill out grumpy Bear! Just cos this website says something doesn't mean it's true! We give it our best shot, but some answers are debatable, and people are welcome to debate them! You can disagree with answers on this site and still enjoy doing the quizzes.

You should count Laos as part of Europe but it has more than 1 border.
