Europe Political Map

The continent of Europe is not to be confused with the European Union. While the geographical region of Europe includes more than 40 countries, the EU only consists of 27 member states. The European Union is an economic and political union while Europe is a continent.

Our first political map of Europe includes only those countries that entirely belong to the continent. However, parts of Russia (until the Ural mountains) and Turkey (the region of East Thrace and a part of Istanbul) geographically belong to Europe as well.

The map does not only show the countries of Europe, but also the European capitals as well as some of the major cities.

Cold War Map of Europe Political

Until the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the map of political Europe looked quite different from today. As you can see in the map below, Germany was still divided into two separate states. At the same time, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia as well as the USSR still existed as cohesive countries. Today, there are all split up into several independent states.

During the times of the Cold war Europe was divided into western Europe and eastern Europe approximately alongside the inner German border. Today, the United Nations suggest the following subdivision:

Northern Europe: UK, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania

Southern Europe: Portugal, Spain, Italy, San Marino, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Greece and the European part of Turkey

Eastern Europe: Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Belarus, UkraineBulgaria, Moldova and the European part of Russia

Western Europe: France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein

One could also argue that countries like Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland and others form a separate area of central Europe.

At the time of writing, the European Union consists of 27 member states. Its history can be traced back to 1957, when Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the Federal Republic of Germany founded the European Economic Community. The goal was to promote the European integration by a common economic policy.
