    Europe in pictures

    Europe is, by convention, considered to be one of the world's seven continents.
    Comprising the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, Europe is generally divided from
    Asia to its east by the water divide of the Ural Mountains, the Ural River,
    the Caspian Sea, the Caucasus region (specification of borders) and the Black Sea
    to the southeast. Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean and other bodies of
    water to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south,
    and the Black Sea and connected waterways to the southeast. Yet the borders for
    Europe—a concept dating back to classical antiquity—are somewhat arbitrary,
    as the term continent can refer to a cultural and political distinction or a physiographic one.

    Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering about 10,180,000
    square kilometres (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of its land area.
    Of Europe's approximately 50 states, Russia is the largest by both area and population
    (although the country has territory in both Europe and Asia), while the Vatican City is the smallest.
    Europe is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of 731 million or about 11% of the world's population.

    Europe, in particular Ancient Greece, is the birthplace of Western culture. It played a predominant
    role in global affairs from the 16th century onwards, especially after the beginning of colonialism.
    Between the 16th and 20th centuries, European nations controlled at various times the Americas, most of Africa,
    Oceania, and large portions of Asia. Both World Wars were largely focused upon Europe, greatly contributing
    to a decline in Western European dominance in world affairs by the mid-20th century as the United States and
    Soviet Union took prominence. During the Cold War, Europe was divided along the Iron Curtain between NATO
    in the west and the Warsaw Pact in the east. European integration led to the formation of the Council of
    Europe and the European Union in Western Europe, both of which have been expanding eastward since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
