Western Europe Region
The 'number of Western European countries
is a loosely defined term and hence, there is no fixed number of countries when one says, or writes 'Western European Countries'. However, mapsofworld.com has made an effort to publish Western Europe Map
online with accurate details. For this, it has chosen two most reliable and authentic sources, which are:
1.The Western European Countries recognized by the UN (9 countries), and
2.The Western European Countries recognized by the National Geographic Society (17 countries, among them 7 are common).
The countries that are situated in the western part of Europe are shown in brown color on the Map of Western Europe
