Europe is a relatively small continent (only Australia being smaller), but as small as it is, it is culturally quite diverse and perhaps has more fascinating cities and beautiful landscapes than any other continent.

It is usually considered that the Ural and Caucasus mountains, the Caspian and Black Seas and the Turkish Straits separate Europe from Asia.
