Europe is one of the continents that make up the Eurasian supercontinent located between latitudes 36 and 70 degrees north latitude. Conventionally historical and cultural reasons is considered a continent, following the redefinition by the Russian geographer Vasily Tatishchev who wished to draw Russia's membership of Europe and Asia.1 Europe's borders and population are controversial, and the term continent can refer to a cultural and political good or physiographic distinctions. Andreas Kaplan describes Europe as "a high cultural diversity in a minimum geographical area". The most widespread definition is one that defines it as located in the eastern half of the northern hemisphere, bounded by the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Mediterranean Sea in the south. To the west, it reaches the Atlantic Ocean, including the volcanic archipelagos of Azores, Madeira and Canary Islands Wild. To the east, bordering Asia, from which separate the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, the Caucasus Mountains, the Black Sea and the Bosporus and Dardanelles.

Europe is the second smallest continent in terms of area, covering 10,530,751 square kilometers or 2% of the surface of planet Earth and about 6.8% of total land area. Hosts a large number of sovereign states, the exact number depends on the definition of the boundary of Europe, as well as the exclusion or inclusion of partially recognized states. Of all European countries, Russia is the largest in area, while the Vatican City is the smallest, not only in Europe but also in the world. These countries are also the least populated and Europe respectively. Europe is the fourth most populous continent after Asia, Africa and America, with a population of 739 million or about 11% of the world population. According to population projections from the United Nations (medium variant), Europe's share will be reduced to 7% in 2050. Europe is the cradle of Western culture. European nations played a major role in world affairs since the sixteenth century onwards, especially after the beginning of colonization. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, European nations controlled most of Africa, America, and much of Asia, and later also Oceania. World War I and World War II led to a decline in European dominance in world affairs as the United States and the Soviet Union took prominence. The Cold War between the two superpowers divided Europe along the Iron Curtain. European integration led to the formation of the Council of Europe and the European Union in Western Europe, which have been expanding eastward since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
