Eastern Europe — Physical

Abstract

Today we can define the geographical eastern border of Europe as the line formed by the combined western borders of Belarus, Ukraine, and the Russian Federated Republic. (See Map 1.) This is true because no concrete natural border exists to separate the Eurasian land mass into the two distinct geographical continents of Europe and Asia. Although apparently arbitrary, such a border can be justified by historical and cultural arguments.
