Unlike most continents, Europe is not a separate landmass, but instead shares the continental shelf with Asia, together making up the giant landmass, Eurasia. The Ural Mountains of Russia divide the landmass into two separate continents, but this division splits Russia, making it part of both Europe and Asia.

Europe has a combination of physical features, from the southern mountain ranges to the northern plains, and the uplands in the northwest. Europe has a unique shape with many peninsulas and internal bodies of water. One of the unusual features of Europe's geography are the fjords of Norway, or the deep cuts of water into the coastal land, creating narrow bodies of water surrounded by steep crevasses.
