Notes

  1. ^ Geographically, Cyprus may be included in Western Asia or the Middle East, but it has been historically and culturally a European country
  2. ^ Kazakhstan is mainly located in Central Asia with a smaller portion west of the Ural River in Eastern Europe
  3. ^ The European portion of Turkey comprises 3% of the country, making it a transcontinental country.
  4. ^ Some definitions of Europe mark the Caucasus Mountains as its border, putting Georgia firmly in Asia. Other definitions place the whole Caucasus region, including Georgia, in Eastern Europe
  5. ^ Armenia is sometimes considered a European country; in some cases, it is considered a transcontinental country. By physiographic criteria, it integrates Asia, but has historical ties with Europe.
  6. ^ Geographically, Azerbaijan is located in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia, straddling Western Asia and Eastern Europe
