The world is made of 195 countries spanning the six habitable continents. Europe, despite being the second smallest continent, has more countries than North and South America combined. With fifty countries, it has the second highest number following Africa's fifty-four.
While the most powerful and recognizable nations of Europe are generally thought to be the bigger economic hitters such as France, Italy, and Germany, the European continent technically extends all the way up to the Caucasus Mountains, the real border with Asia. That means that Europe embraces several transcontinental countries that are both in Europe and Asia, such as Russia and Turkey.
From its westernmost point in the Atlantic Ocean to its shared border of Asia, how much do you know about Europe? You might know the capital of Portugal, but do you know the capital of Russia that lies within European borders? Can you remember in which countries you would find Stonehenge and the Grand Bazaar? Do you know the names of Europe's main rivers, its lengthy mountain ranges, or its notable ports? How about facts about the demographics of this relatively densely-populated continent? With dozens of countries and a history going back many thousands of years, it's hard to know everything about Europe. Let's see how you do!
