Russia’s Border with Asia

If you’ve seen a world map, you’ll likely know that Russia is the largest country in Europe.

An issue people have with Russia as a European country is defining its borders with Asia. Separating where Europe ends and Asia begins is difficult with such a large country. Typically the two continents are considered by geographers and politicians to be separated by the Ural Mountains in Russia.

In this fun little pictogram, the Ural Mountains are the clear divide on the left of the continent, where the train is passing.


You may have missed in on the map…

The smallest country in Europe (and the world), funny enough, is also a city, and that’s Vatican City.

A lot of people visiting Rome and Italy aren’t aware they’re visiting another country when they visit the Vatican, because it’s so small. For all those travellers who visited Vatican City already, don’t forget to increased your count of countries visited by one!


Whether you want to visit all 51 or you just wanted to see what your options are when visiting Europe, keep an open mind about the places you travel. The major destination like Greece and London are great, but don’t neglect some of the lesser visited countries too!
