Europe is a mainland found totally in the Northern Hemisphere and for the most part in the Eastern Hemisphere. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean toward the north, the Atlantic Ocean toward the west and the Mediterranean Sea toward the south. It includes the westernmost piece of Eurasia. Since around 1850, Europe is most normally considered as isolated from Asia by the watershed partitions of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas and the conduits of the Turkish Straits.
Though the term "continent" implies physical geography, the land border is somewhat arbitrary and has moved since its first conception in classical antiquity. The division of Eurasia into two continents reflects East-West cultural, linguistic and ethnic differences, some of which vary on a spectrum rather than with a sharp dividing line. The border does not follow political boundaries, with Turkey, Russia and Kazakhstan being transcontinental countries.
