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.
If you’re not from Europe, or geography is not your forte, you might want to have a look at the map, so here it comes:

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

The top of the new tower was only 41 meters (134 ft) above sea level. […]
