europe

Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, and Asia to the east.

Europe shares the landmass of Eurasia with Asia. Europe is commonly considered to be separated from Asia by the watershed of the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, the Greater Caucasus, the Black Sea, and the Bosporus Strait.

France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom are transcontinental in that their main land areas are in Europe while pockets of their territories are located on other continents separated from Europe by large bodies of water.
