Europe is a landmass located mainly in the Northern and Eastern Hemispheres, bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia. Since approximately 1850, Europe has been considered separate from Asia, distinguished by the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the Turkish Straits. The concept of a continent, however, is somewhat arbitrary and has been redefined several times throughout history. The boundary between Europe and Asia reflects cultural, linguistic, and ethnic differences that vary gradually rather than abruptly. The geographic boundary also does not align with political borders, with Turkey, Russia, and Kazakhstan being transcontinental countries. Azerbaijan and Georgia also straddle the border between the two continents if the Caucasus Mountains are strictly used as the boundary.
